Peanut Butter Banana Chip Granola Bars

peanutbutter_granolabars

This past weekend, I slept by my sister and to my dismay, watched her kids eat granola bar after granola bar. Packaged processed goods. I asked the kids if they thought there was sugar in what they were eating and received a “No, it’s healthy” response. It’s hard with young kids to get them to make the right food choices but getting them involved can make it that much more exciting, so we made my 6 ingredient raw candy bars. [Get the Recipe]. - excerpted from Running on Veggies Blog. ...

I had almost all the ingredients on hand to make some muffins, so it was the obvious choice! The most SWEET (get it?!) fact about Lily’s is that the company named themselves after a now 13-year-old girl who is a cancer survivor and they donate a portion of their proceeds to childhood cancer.

  Well, I know most of us love chocolate, don’t you? What better token for a stocking stuffer but Lily’s non-gmo and delicious chocolate. It surely will fill some stockings and it will be well received and enjoyed. One thing I know is that we enjoy dark chocolate and it is healthy and tasty although not for all. My family enjoys it with their cereal or in their smoothie. [Read More]. - excerpted from Emy Cooks Momentos blog. ... [ Read More ]
