Does your sanity often rely on the ability to whip out a snack to satisfy the post-school/work whims of hangry little people (and sometimes not so little people)? ME too. Enter the granola bar. In this case, these healthy chocolate, nut granola bars, filled with good stuff. Stuff you can genuinely feel good about feeding to the people you love (yes, even in those really hangry moments), stuff like organic oats, flax seed, almonds, pecans, and coconut.
When I remember to bring a healthy, portable snack with me at pickup time, I’m doing MYSELF a favour. Because sometimes, sanity comes in the form of a really quiet car ride. So, I’ve given up aspirations of a crumb-free car. It’s NOT gonna happen. But peacefully car rides? Yes!
And if you’re dealing with a fully grown hangry adult (say in his mid-thirties), well, give these a try. Happiness is often just a full belly away.
* Note: recipe is loosely adapted from this Smitten Kitchen recipe (which is really yummy). While I’ve changed quite a bit, I do follow her cook times and temps, which are spot on.
