    Thank you!!! I feel SO guilty feeding my son packaged granola bars because they contain so many ingredients I can’t pronounce. He loves them and I try to convince myself it’s ok because it’s granola so it’s healthy. But now a solution! This recipe sounds so easy (I’m a beginner in the kitchen so easy is important!) and good! I’m looking forward to more Healthy Lunchbox entries!!

    Making this tomorrow!!! So much better than mystery ingredients. Thanks so much!!

  • These look wonderful. I have stopped buying granola bars as I am trying to limit processed food in our house but my son wants them still. This looks like a great alternative.

    thanks for the caramelized rice krispies idea, can’t wait to try them that way for rice krispies treats; also hope I can modify this recipe with apple somehow. There used to be a really good brand here but cannot find them anymore
