Healthy Granola Bars

Healthy Granola Bars



These homemade granola bars are the perfect healthy snack for your little ones. They are great as a lunch box filler or as an after school snack. Ideal as breakfast on the go for busy parents too! If you wrap and store them individually they are just as convenient as shop bought alternatives, and even more nutritious!

For this recipe, we used our Apple and Apricot Puree to add a bit of sweetness and flavour. Our Family Portion Set set has all the pots you need to batch cook, portion and safely store food for your entire family.
