Chewy Granola Bars

September 21, 2011

OK, so, this is  something that was purchased in our house in mass quantities.  Granola bars.  Oh, my kids can go through boxes of these in a week. It was getting expensive and I figured, homemade is healthier, why, not try them out?

Like mac n cheese, I still have kids that prefer the boxed version of these.  But, I refuse to buy them anymore. So, they are coming around...slowly.   My husband and I, love them.  I make a batch every week for him and he brings them to work to snack on.

They are super easy to make too!

  1. How do you store these? In an airtight container or in the fridge? How long do they fresh? thanks!

  2. Hey Morgan- Yep, just an airtight container or if I don't have one available, just a big ziploc bag. They get eaten pretty fast in our house, but, I think they would be fine for probably up to 2 weeks in a sealed container. Thanks for visiting!
