Having these handy snack bars ready to grab and go on all the holiday outings means you don’t land up buying junk whilst out and about. They’re great for kids and grown ups alike!
It’s always tricky trying to get the snacks right, whether for me or for the kids. Luncboxes, outings, or just plain snacking at home leads to junk, junk and more junk if I’m not prepped with an alternative. After buying countless granola bars (and then looking at the sugar and stuff added!), I decided to combine 2 of my recipes and give them a bit of a face lift 😉
So granola clusters plus seed crackers and a bit extra means snack bars are born! Although it’s a long list of ingredients, there really isn’t much to this at all. You can swap and change the dry ingredients to whatever combination you like or have available, so it can be very flexible. You could also leave out the wet ingredients, add more dried fruit and whole nuts, some chocolate chips if you wanted, and you’ve got yourself some trail mix. I’ve used whatever I had to make it as moreish and packed full of goodness as I could! Adding the chocolate just gives it that extra bit of nom nom nom…!
