Kid Approved Granola Bar Recipes

My kids are picky eaters. (If your kids aren’t, please don’t tell me about it. ;-)) Picky eaters + a mom who isn’t a morning person = breakfast disaster on most days. I have searched high and low, and I have found precisely one granola bar that my kids will eat (each). Of course it isn’t the same one. Add their granola bar preferences to those of mine and my husband, and you are looking at 4 different boxes of granola bars to feed the 4 of us for a week (see here, here, here and here). That can get expensive!

Thankfully, the internet has a plethora of awesome, kid approved granola bar recipes just begging to be made. I am on a mission this year to do more home cooking and prepping ahead of time so that we can (hopefully) slash our food budget by eliminating some of the processed/pre-made foods that we buy. If you are on the same path OR if you are just looking for some fun new granola bar recipes to try, here is a list to get you started!
