Notes

This recipe was added to a cookbook I made for a six year old child. I was his nanny for three years, our favorite thing to do together was bake!

These are a great snack for kids, adults, grandpas, neighbors... just about anyone would like this delicious Granola Bar. It is so easy to adjust to your liking. Add sweet or salty items and wah-la!

I've been told this is better then "the store bought granola bars."

A dash of local for every season
