'Mama, I'm hungry!!' Sound familiar? Well, May (bio below) has a great solution! Her homemade granola bars keep little hands busy and growling tummies satisfied. Thanks, May! I think my ever-hungry kiddo and I are going to make a batch of cran-raisin bars for tomorrow morning! :)
Most kids love , and as convenient as they are, they are loaded
with all kinds of extra preservatives and ingredients I can't pronounce.
Couple that with my 5-year-old's interest in making pretty much anything
she likes to eat, and away we went to the kitchen to whip some up from
scratch! They were way easier than I thought and she literally did it all
herself. All I did was put it in and take it out of the oven!
Mix 3 cups of quick cook oats, 1 cup chopper nuts (we used peanuts or you
can leave them out entirely), 1 cup chocolate chips, and 1/2 cup mini
Then pour 14 oz of , 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 egg and 2 tbsp
20 minutes at 350, and that's it!
This recipe is a great base for adding whatever your favorite flavors are,
so your kids can have their own custom granola bars.
