Granola Bars

I just ordered this eBook called "Healthy Snacks To Go" by Katie Kimball of Kitchen Stewardship (link on the side bar), and it's a big hit so far! It's only $6.95, so you don't have to worry about your pocket book.

Katie's granola bars are so great. My husband has decided that he thinks we need them on hand at all times and he wants to show them off to everyone. There are lots of tips and recipes to keep you and your family more healthy with more healthful snacks that you can have in your diaper bag or wherever. Like Larabars? Try making your own!

Here are my guys after enjoying some soaked granola bars.

"Soaked" granola bars. There is only one because these went so quickly! I didn't wait until they were fully cooled to add the chocolate chips, thus the melting.

The next time I made these I didn't have time to soak and dehydrate my oats, but we loved them anyway! I had some more patience to wait until they were cool to add the chips, as you can see.

We loved these both ways. The soaked had a bit more crunch to them along with being chewy (I did unbaked both times), and the un-soaked are chewy deliciousness. Yum! Thank you, Katie!


  1. Are you willing to share the recipe? If so, please email it to me. I have a granola bar recipe but it has quite a bit of sugar in it.

  2. I will post one version of the recipe on this site, but like I said, the whole book (which I linked to) is full of great ideas. Enjoy!
