Angie just baked up a great healthy home made snack bar recipe that was recommended to her by a friend. Her friend had mentioned that her kids loved them and had no idea that there were some very healthy ingredients in them.
These healthy snack bars certainly passed the taste test with our kids as well, which is really great news because we are always looking for healthy snack choices to put in their lunches.
Here’s the ingredients:
2 cups of oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup brown sugar (that’s the only bad part)
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup wheat germ or ground flax seed (we did the flax)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla
Optional: we added just a few chocolate chips to make our kids happy Seriously… just a few chocolate chips in the entire mixture is all you need.
Blend well. Spray a 9 x 6 baking dish and pat mixture with a spatula. Bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees until the edges are golden brown.
Enjoy this tasty and healthy snack bar and be sure to let us know what you think about it.
