I don’t know about you, but it feels like my kids are always hungry! Come to think of it, my husband and I are always hungry, too. Maybe the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
It can be a real struggle to find foods that are filling and nourishing (and don’t cost an arm and a leg). And if you deal with food allergies, sensitivities, or special diets, like we do, it is even more difficult.
I love this recipe for granola bars. More often than not, there’s a batch in the fridge, and another stashed in the freezer for later. It’s not difficult to make, packs a good nutritional punch, and everyone who has tried them loves them!
I got the basic idea for the recipe here, and then switched a few things up. You could also use various dried fruits in place of the raisins, different nuts instead of the seeds, and peanut or almond butter in place of the sunflower seed butter I used. This is a very versatile recipe that just works well!
