Snack Bars

Posted on

Have you been on the hunt for the perfect granola bar recipe? I definitely have and I find it so hard to make granola bars with the right consistency.  You want them chewy and crunchy all at the same time. Getting this consistency can be tough. When I made these granola cups they were very crunchy. They were tasty, but again they didn’t give both the two textures I was looking for this time around. That’s when I found a recipe from Eating Well – go figure and decided to whip it up in the kitchen.
