Let’s talk snacks.
You know that you can’t
live survive the day without them so they are obviously super important. You see, if I didn’t have at least 3 snacks per day, I would probably have a hissy fit because, hanger is reallllll. Snacks are life savers……if you remember to pack them! That’s my problem, so many times I forget to bring a snack which leads me to spends lots of $$$ on snacks when I’m out and about. So PUHLEASEEE remember to bring snacks!
So this leads me to today’s recipe, AKA a tasty homemade snacky just for you! Okay, it’s for me too. I have a love/hate relationship with granola bars. I (mostly) hate store-bought granola bars and I always love homemade. Most store-bought granola bars contain icky ingredients that I can’t pronounce! But lucky for you, these homemade granola bars only contain 5 real ingredients that are already in your pantry:
Farmer’s Direct Co-Op Organic Quick Rolled Oats
These granola bars are not made with any oats, but with the best quality oats out these: Farmer’s Direct Co-Op Organic Oats. You would never think that you would be able to tell the difference between oatmeal brands but once you try this brand, you will recognize how much better they taste than other store-bought brands!
The combo of banana and nutella is TO DIE FOR! Especially when you add in chocolate chunks AND banana chips on top of it. You would never guess that these granola bars are healthy! They are no-bake and take less than 10 minutes to assemble, pretty awesome, ehhh? Oh and they are gluten-free and vegan if you weren’t convinced already!
