Forget the box! Make chewy granola bars homemade.This is something that at one point in our household, was purchased in mass quantities.
My family can go through boxes of these in a week. Especially, when the kids still went to public school. It was easy to toss them in for lunches, snacks, and even, an occasional breakfast on the go. It was totally nuts and honestly, got pretty expensive.
But, now, we skip the box. I make these instead.
Easy to make and completely versatile. These have a mini chocolate chips and chopped mixed nuts. But, yours could have vanilla chips, peanut butter chips, dried fruits, peanuts or walnuts. Whatever you and your family will like!
