I’ve been eating a lot of granola bars even since our babe was born. Waking up throughout the night and nursing makes me very hungry and thirsty, and I keep a glass of water and some snacks by the chair. I stopped to read the label at the grocery store the other day on the box of granola bars, and realized I was eating a lot of preservatives and artificial ingredients (not to mention spending a lot of money). I did some searching, and I learned how easy it is to make granola bars at home. We modified this recipe to include dried papaya, toasted coconut, chopped chocolate pieces (we’re out of chips), and walnuts. They are amazing and so much better than the store bought ones. The recipe also sold me with the mention of being a great food gift for new parents!
