To save money on snacks, I pulled out Katie of Kitchen Stewardship’s E-Book, Healthy Snacks to Go, and decided to try the granola bars. My husband and kids raved about the bars. Here they are in all their glory.

Granola Bars from Kitchen Stewardship's Healthy Snacks to GoThen, I had the brilliant idea to double the recipe, and use up some barley malt syrup in place of half the honey. The bars were wet so I left them in the oven for a little longer, took a phone call, checked them, made a phone call, and then realized that the bars might be a little overbaked.

Granola Bars from Kitchen Stewardship's Healthy Snacks to GoWell, they are a little overbaked, and very brown from the barley malt syrup. I may be eating granola bars by myself for the next week or so.

In the meantime, if you want a very healthy, very tasty granola bar recipe that will have your kids giving you two thumbs up because their mouths are full of granola bar, I highly recommend buying Healthy Snacks to Go. I also recommend staying focused on what you are doing in the kitchen, and not multitasking.

I am not affiliated with Kitchen Stewardship’s affiliation program at this time, and all mishaps portrayed in this post have nothing to do with Katie’s recipe.

I definitely wouldn’t recommend the malt barley syrup. :( No one wants to eat them, but I’m not about to throw them out. I could see breaking up the bars into small chunks and pouring some milk over them for cereal. I made a new batch today the right way, and they’ll probably be gone by the end of Wednesday! LOL
