One Small Change Update: Homemade Granola Bars

Our change for this month has been limited the purchasing and use of individually wrapped items--to eliminate all the waste/trash that is created by doing so.  One of the main things we purchase that falls into this category are granola bars (as well as juice boxes/pouches--which we've changed, too).

Well, we finally made some this morning before running out of the house to the library.  Each of us had a little taste--they were still a bit warm and needed to cool down.  Sweetie pie said that they tasted "very healthy!"  LOL  And they do.  We used the recipe Debbie shared on her blog, The Loving Path, with a one adjustment: omitted dates and added more raisins and cranberries.  I like them.  I think I'll add a bit of honey next time to give them a little more sweetness.

For our first time we're very happy (ok, I'm very happy) and we're looking forward to making another patch next week!  Thanks Debbie for sharing this one! :D

I think adding honey is a great idea. I found them a little on the un-sweet side too. :) Glad you guys liked them.
