Trail Mix Granola Bars

Trail Mix Granola Bars

In an attempt to mix things up in the lunch boxes for back-to-school, I decided to make my own 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.

Ingredients:

Granola Bars

2 cups old fashioned oats

1/2 cup Rice Krispies

1/2 cup Chex cereal

1/3 cup Flaxseed

1/3 cup dried cranberries

2/3 cup mini M&M’s

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

2/3 cup honey

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

 

Preparation:

1) In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, Rice Krispies, Chex cereal, flaxseed, cranberries, M&Ms and sunflower seeds. You could always add different nuts or dried fruit as well. Trail mix means you can add what you like!
