Here is a recipe for homemade granola bars that are family has enjoyed a lot. They are a lot cheaper than buying little boxes of individually wrapped bars. They are also quick and easy to put together. There only draw back is that they can be a little crumbly. Sometimes they aren't to bad I think it depends on whether they are baked for just the perfect amount of time. Crumbly or not they are very yummy! Yummy homemade granola bars
