Hearty Granola Bars

cheryl lundquist


My son is allergic to many different varieties of nuts so buying granola bars and various snacks is hard. I came up with Hearty Granola Bars so I knew the ingredients in them were safe for him. Both my children love these and won't let me buy store bought granola bars now!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Yum, yum, yum! We love the flavor and versatility of these hearty bars. A terrific choice for nut lovers and avoiders alike.

(Note: This recipe does include peanut butter, so please use caution if you have a peanut sensitivity.) The Test Kitchen
