I Finally Made my own Granola Bars

I finally made my own granola bars (I swear we spend a small fortune on them) using Emeril Lagasse's "Peanut Butter Granola Bars" recipe.

I tired another recipe as well but this one was a hit. Next time I may top with some chocolate chips.

It was really simple, I just melted butter and honey and mixed in with the nuts as well as some cinnamon. Toasted the nuts and then poured the peanut butter mixture over them and cooled!

The kids loved it and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.

They look great! I've always wanted to make my own granola bars, now maybe I will!

Yup - homemade granola is great. I make my own - rolled oats, coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, walnuts, honey or maple syrup, a little veggie oil, a sprinkle of cinnamon, and I bake it - then I add tons of dried fruits!

Darius - That sounds delicious. Granola and granola bars are an easy way to get something healthy into my kids. But only my daughter will eat the dried fruit:)

anudivya - thanks for visiting, I try and keep it healthy, although I slack sometimes (last night we had frozen pizza, and not the healthy kind, just the cheap kind:), but overall I like to feel good about what my family is eating
