I love granola bars, but they’re either full of nasty stuff I’m not willing to eat, or incredibly pricey… what’s the matter with them, it’s not that they’re made of gold or something! That’s why you should make your own granola bars at home: they’re much cheaper, much tastier and you can control what goes into them and whatnot. Oh! And they’re super easy to make plus you get to eat the mixture before you press it into the pan. All pros, I’d say!
These, guys, are incredible. The peanut butter chocolate combo is to die for, and the chocolate chunks are HUGE. Now, that’s how I like my bars. Crunchy, chewy and not cloyingly sweet: these are all that I could ever wish for in snack form. And healthy enough to have them for breakfast! If you look at the ingredients list of a storebought one, you’ll be surprised that there’s not a single one that you’d usually have for breakfast or even can pronounce. Yuk! And at least the ones we get here taste like cardboard.
And don’t get me started on those so called “healthy” ones, I’ve seen them clocking at 50kcal, full of artificial sweeteners and fake stuff. 50kcal?? They’re called energy bars for a reason. What are you supposed to do with 50kcal? Take a nap? I think that even naps burn more calories than that! But these are super full of protein, healthy fats and fiber and will provide you with the necessary energy to carry out grape-harvesting for 8 hours. Obviously, you’ll need more food than a couple of bars, but trust me, these are so helpful! I think they would be awesome to carry with you if you’re running a marathon, so I might make myself a lot of these when I run my first half-one in November. Can’t wait for it!
Have you ever run a marathon or a half-marathon? Is there any important tips I should know?
By the way, I think I’ve managed to fix the white balance problem *I think*. But you know I’m no master at photography, so these photos might still have an odd color and I haven’t realised… I don’t know, but I think I like them! I’m so in love with the new camera!
I hope you make these and love them!
