Who knew that granola bars were this easy to make, I didn't! Now that I have made these I will have them all ready for us to eat on Sunday nights for the week. They make a nice on the go breakfast or a fast snack when your hungry during the day. Love them!

These are excellent! I added chopped pecans and raisins this time. Next time I will try glazed walnuts and chocolate chips.
