September Brings Granola Bars!

 

Granola bars definitely remind me of growing up and taking a homemade lunch to school most days. My mom would typically pack some sort of granola bar for me along with my other lunch goodies. While my school days are farrrrr gone, I still definitely crave granola bars regularly. The thing is, most granola bars out on the grocery store shelves, especially those not in the organic or natural foods section, are seriously loaded with refined sugars and other random, unpronounceable ingredients …. no thanks maltodextrin and fractionated palm oil, you can stay at the store.

These days I often make my own healthy homemade granola bars and energy bars, packed with whole food ingredients and made with only natural, unrefined sweeteners. Today I’m sharing 10 delicious homemade granola bars that I’ve found in the wonderful blogosphere to inspire you to make your own at home too! Whether you have little ones who are “back-to-school” or you just like to have healthy snacks on hand for yourself, I guarantee there’s something in this list that will peak your interest!
