One Pinner said I made these! Okay, these are going to be hard to beat. The kids say they love them more than the Trader Joes granola bars I buy. They are simple and fast to make. LOVE these and so will you. Recipe only makes about 10 bars so youre going to need to at least triple the recipe. By the way, great for summer since you dont have to bake these!
