September 20, 2009

When I was asked to teach a healthy snack cooking class Monday for a group of first and second grade boy scouts, I thought these Healthy Granola Bars would be ideal. These have no nuts and are so delicious. I am serving them with some homemade smoothies, perfect for an afternoon snack.
