“It’s Income Tax Season, so our brains could use some easy arithmetic; as in seven-ingredient-or-less recipes. Show us the healthy, no-brainer dish you fix for breakfast, lunch or dinner. “
AKA these 5 ingredient granola bars fit the bill for this challenge perfectly!
It’s pretty easy to get your craving fix if your craving something that’s sweet, salty, crunchy, chewy, peanut buttery or chocolatley, but what do you do when your craving all these things? You honor those cravings and make something with all of these flavors in them. We are huge fans of this chocolate, peanut butter and pretzel combo, prime example is here.
Now these granola bars have ALL the goods:
Sweet from honey
Crunchy and salty from pretzels
Chewy from oats
Peanut Buttery from smooth natural peanut butter
Chocolatley from chocolate chips
