Homemade granola bars

These granola bars are delicious, healthy and so easy to make. While they’re not school-safe (they contain nuts), they’re great for a healthy snack on the go. And they’re perfect for summer cooking because you don’t need to bake them in the oven! We’ll definitely be packing these for picnics and hikes this summer 🙂
