These bars were the snacks that I packed so far for my kids lunches this week. Or I was hoping it would be enough until Friday but then my hubby discovered them, and so they are all gone…I am glad they all liked it that much, it just means I have to whip up something else now. I like to make healthier snacks for my kids to bring to school, like Granola Bars or Muffins, because homemade you can really control what goes in it.I guess I just have to make a larger batch, my hubby is not the only one that likes a little healthy snack;)
