While some of our summertime adventures may still be a scaled down version of what we had hoped for, there is so much to see and discover in our local area. All it takes is a quick internet search to find a new trail or forest to explore. Be it by foot or bike, make sure to pack these delicious homemade granola bars for the trip. These are one of our family favourite recipes. Recently my husband told me that they taste like camping. This checks out because they are almost always on our camping trip menus. I love how the taste or smell of something can evoke so many neat memories. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
Maple Granola Bars
Store bought granola bars make me a little irritated if I am being honest! They act like they are all healthy and such, made with whole grains but if we take a closer look we see that they are just candy bars hiding behind the facade of, ‘whole grain goodness’. Some are made with several different sugars, artificial flavours and colours. Just yesterday, I saw a, ‘granola bar,’ with coloured candy bits and drizzled in chocolate. This is not right my friends! Granola bars were intended to be a healthy snack on the go. That bar from yesterday was anything but – it was a sugar crash in a cute little package! I’m here to share a healthier version of our beloved granola bar that you can feel better about serving to your loved ones and eating yourself. Pack these for your next day at the beach or camping trip!
