My children are really enjoying the nice weather so far this month and have been busy running around outside and getting lots of fresh air. When they come in the house after playing, they are bringing their appetites with them as well.
Today I made a batch of these yummy Peanut Butter & Banana Nut Chewy Granola Bars for them. These no bake treats are very easy to make and will satisfy any hungry child’s appetite! Old fashioned oats are blended with peanut butter, mashed banana, banana chips, honey roasted peanuts, and chocolate chips for a sweet yet filling snack. I even like to add a little ground flax seed to the mix for added nutrition.
These bars can be cut and stored in the refrigerator in individual bags or containers and can even be taken on the go if you are running late in the morning. I like to make these because they end up being very convenient for our family. If one of my kiddos is dragging their feet in the morning or doesn’t feel like eating a lot for breakfast, I can always send one of these along with them to school. My daughter has dance classes late in the evening, so when she comes home she is always looking for something a little extra to eat and I can have her quickly grab one of these before she goes to bed. These bars never go to waste and are always worth the 15 minutes (if that) it took for me to make them. Do you make your own granola bars? What flavors are popular at your house?
