“These granola bars pack well for mid-day snacks or hiking trips. Vary the ingredients for variety or to make them more wholesome. I make two versions--this one if for my sweet-tooth husband--the other for myself, contains 1 c. dried fruit and nuts instead of chocolate chips and marshmallows. Be creative!” - by MESILLA
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch pan
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
