Homemade Granola Bars

Have you ever been been munching on snacks that you think are healthy, only to find out later that what you're eating is actually unhealthy? Store-bought granola bars are a prime example of a quick snack that people think is good for them but really isn't. Certain brands are better than others, but most brands have tons of added cane sugar and preservatives. And most of the bars that are full of that junk is lacking in vitamins and nutrients, too.

Store the bars in an airtight container to keep them fresh. We like to line the container with parchment, and then place a layer of parchment or wax paper between each layer so that they are easy to grab. Check out this page for how you can get your hands on some delicious, all natural nut butters like the one you found in this recipe, or this page for more of our nutty recipes!
