This recipe comes in handy no matter who you are or where you plan on eating them. Its perfect for the office, sending your kids to daycare, road trips, before sports, study snacks and breakfast. It’s also vegan for those looking for healthy vegan recipes. It’s so natural and healthy that guilt won’t haunt you after you’re done.

  1. The granola bars are amazing and better than store bought. I even brought one in for my coworker to try and she loved it! I have a new staple in my house, thank you. The best part about these was the simplicity of the recipe and ease of making them. 🙂
