So, my latest project, is trying to figure out how to make those recipes that my kids love so much, healthier. I figure that most of our calories are taken up with snacks. So what I want to do is figure out A. How to make them from scratch and B. How to makevthem healthier. I would love to go grain free or at least wheat free for the health benefit but I just don't see it happening. I absolutely love bread. I love to make bread. I love to eat bread. I'm a total breadnut.

I already have a wonderful No Bake granola bar recipe. They love them so much I have to quadruple the recipe at a time and freeze them so they are in the freezer and ready to go at a moment's notice. Now I need something to substitute for potato chips, poptarts, and fruit snacks that is kid friendly, budget friendly, and time friendly. good luck right? Well I'm going to give it a try and let you know how it goes.

    The granola bars are old fashioned oats, peanut butter, agave syrup, and dried fruit. I add chia and flax seeds and chopped, raw almonds as well sometimes and always try to get dried fruit without extra sugar added. They are packed with protein and healthier fats (from the nuts and seeds) and taste amazing. I will try and hunt down the recipe for you :-)

    I have not yet tried it myself, but have seen some nice recipes for sweet potato chips or apple chips made either in the oven or the microwave. What all do you put in your granola bars?
