Granola bars are one of my favorite snacks! They are delicious and make me feel like I am eating a really healthy snack. However, I grabbed a few boxes of granola bars for a road trip and looked at the ingredients… the ones I had chosen were not so healthy. When a scanned them on the Fooducate App the rating they got was not stellar or even close. What a disappointment. What did they have in them? Well they were high in sugar and oil…. I have discovered that the more ingredients in a store bought bar, the more unhealthy it likely is. So what is a girl to do….? Make her own granola bars of course!
These granola bars require just 3 ingredients: honey, nut butter, and old fashioned oats. I use all organic ingredients. You can add in little extras such as nuts, seeds, dried fruit or even some chocolate chips if desired. But sometimes simpler is better.
They go really well with my morning shake!

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
