Lunch Box Granola Bars

School is starting this week so in honor of that I thought I would share with you a homemade granola bar.



I have tried 3 different recipes for homemade granola bars and I liked two of them they are Granola Bars III (that’s what I made this time)  and Playgroup Granola Bars.  One important thing to remember when making granola bars is to not over bake them. If you want a nice chewy granola bar bake them until the edges are just turning brown and the middle looks set, but not firm.



I printed off a label for them that I made up.  I wrapped them in wax paper then foil then placed the label over the seam to keep them closed.  I think I ended up with 14 or 16.  I have 14 wrapped I’m just not sure if some of them were eaten before I got a chance to wrap them.



School anyone?? Actually I love summer and I love having my kids home, I’ll be sad to send them off this week.  Especially since I’ll have 3 going this year… they grow up way to fast.

Thanks for the recipe. I've been looking for one. I have three in school too. And 2 home. A perfect balance in my opinion. :-)
