Dark Chocolate and Coconut stand out in these healthy, (Kashi copycat!) Granola Bars!
Snacks! Ohmygosh. They’re close to one of my favorite parts of the day. Not just for the fact that snacks are SO good, but I constantly crave them. Like all day long. I could just keep on shoving my face. Most days I do..I have no self-control.
I’ve tried to snack on just carrots or celery, and sometimes when I have a big bowl of hummus, I can totally pull that off. But many times…just no.
I like sugar! I like salt! I like lots of flavor in whatever I am going to be consuming! My oldest son has turned into the ultimate snacker. He’s not a huge fan of big meals, he just snacks all day long. From breakfast until dinner..he just keeps eating. Both of my kids do actually, but my youngest really loves a good, solid meal too.
Anyways, I think he learned that bad snacking habit from yours truly. C’est la vie.
I usually keep a box or two of granola bars on hand to toss in my purse, when I know we will be running errands for a few hours. My kids are great, but food always helps hold them a little longer when they’re getting fidgety.
My most favorite lately are the Kashi Chocolate and Coconut Bars. This is definitely not a sponsored post, I just sincerely cannot get enough of them. SO this is kind of a copycat of those bars.
My kids and I can plow through a box of them if I’m not careful..they love them as much as I do. So I figured, why not try and make them at home? Then I really know what is going in them.
You know when you envision something to be good, and then the outcome exceeds your expectations? Well yes, that is what happened here. I believe these are better than the Kashi ones, if I do say so myself.
Even my coconut, granola, hating husband couldn’t get enough of these. We were eating them as dessert after dinner for a few days..and as snacks too! Complete perfection of granola bars.
You’ve got the dark chocolate, nuts, oats, flax, chia seeds, and lots of flavors bringing these bars together. They’re the ultimate indulgence that you can actually feel pretty guilt-free about! Healthy fats, antioxidants, fiber, and loads of texture and flavor!
These are becoming a permanent staple in our house!
