Nut free granola bites

Nut Free Granola bar dilemma

I love granola bars but am not really impressed with the options available for purchase. As a result, I’m always on the lookout for an easy and delicious granola bar recipe that will save me some money and I can feel good about eating. Additionally, with many schools adopting a nut-free policy for snacks, this recipe seemed to be a good fit for the kids snack option.

Bars, bites or granola?

I pulled the pan out of the oven, excited to cut in and eat some bars. However, the moment I attempted to cut, the whole pan contents crumbled into small bites and loose granola. Despite this set back, my final product was a sweet and crunchy granola, that has been a great snack to munch on through out the day.

Let me know if you try this recipe and have better luck with achieving bar status.
