Recipe of the Week - Homemade Granola Bars

These bars might not have less calories compared to store-bought granola bars, but they are made from ingredients you can actually pronounce.  Added bonus:  they are DELICIOUS. I love making these bars for my family and friends. The bars are rich in flavor, and they fill you up! They take about 10 minutes to pull together and another 30-60 minutes to set up in the refrigerator.

Since my son was born, I've become increasingly interested in what is in my food. I want my food (and his) to be as preservative-free as possible. I think these bars have much healthier ingredients than many of the "diet" bars on the grocery shelves.
