In an attempt to mix things up in the lunch boxes for back-to-school, I decided to make my own trail mix granola bars. Sure, I could just buy a box and make it easy-peasy but I’m trying to keep things a little healthier around my house when I can (and when I’m not making desserts!).

Plus, I just never know what added stuff they put in all those boxed treats. If I make it from scratch, I have control over what my kids are eating. It’s also a great opportunity to sneak a few extra things in it like flaxseed.

If you are looking for a delicious, easy-to-make treat that is a vitamin and mineral boost, you have to try these Trail Mix Granola Bars.

Trail Mix Granola Bars Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup Rice Krispies
