Insanely Good Granola Bars

Granola bars are a go-to snack for lunches and sports, but the good ones are expensive and the cheap ones are full of processed ingredients. All of them are full of sugar. These homemade bars will be sure to get eaten and only take 10 minutes to prepare.

The only problem is your family will eat these so fast that you’ll be lucky if there are any left for lunches.

Granola bars are a great after school snack
