“Summer, Summer, Summertime…”
The heat is up, and the kids have been freed from their school duties for the next 2 1/2 months. And that means that I gotta up my mom game. If I don’t, then I’m going to have some cranky, bored, and extra clingy kids…which will lead to an exhausted, frustrated and cranky mom. Since I refuse to be that mom, I have decided to embrace this time with my kids. After all, they won’t be this little forever… and “it goes by so fast”, as people like to point out to me every single day.
But I digress.
Grandparents are the best at spoiling our kids…and what better way than with delicious treats?
Thankfully, my parents respect our views on food, so they try their best to keep healthy snacks on hand for when we come to visit (thanks for that, by the way, mom and dad). 9 times out of 10, when we walk into their house, my kids will ask for a snack (I swear mom, we do not starve our children!)…
One of their favorite special treats that they get at my parents house, are granola bars… more specifically, chocolate chip granola bars. While there are plenty of healthier options out there, most of them still have some undesired ingredients; natural flavors, caramel color, and the like.
So I made it my mission to find a delicious, healthy, and easy recipe for homemade granola bars.
