Homemade Nuts & Honey Crunchy Granola Bars

Here's my new recipe for crunchy granola. I absolutely love Nature's Valley Oats & Honey Granola & Pecan Granola Bars but they're definitely not cheap enough to eat as quickly as I do! I love crumbling them and sprinkling it on yogurt- my recipe allows you to cut them into whatever shape you desire or use to top yogurt, oatmeal, or when baking. In fact crumbling the granola on top of my second recipe Lemon Ginger Banana Bread before popping the pan into the oven to bake will create a healthy crumble on top without all the sugar in a traditional crumble. I will post the recipe for Lemon Ginger Banana Bread subsequent article- just click the link!

New Recipes for Crunchy Granola Bars, New & Improved Banana Bread

Crunchy Granola Bars baking in the oven
Filled the house with such wonderful smells
honey, almond, & vanilla! 

The last couple of weeks, I have been working on a couple new recipes that I would like to share. I absolutely love crunchy granola bars but have wanted a healthy and most importantly, tasty substitute to the Nature's Valley granola bars that I eat way too quickly! I think I've come up with an excellent substitute, but still think there are things to tweak. I will post the recipe later this afternoon and definitely need input from others that have been making homemade granola bars. Try this recipe, change up the ingredients along with me and share you're results with me at I will add the comments below so that others may benefit & come up with their own perfect, healthy recipe to share with their family! I hope that together we can eat scrumptious, healthy foods while knowing exactly what the ingredients are in our foods & all the while saving money!

Inspiration of the Day

I had heard of Rudolf Steiner before, but was not familiar with his works until doing a little research this morning. I thought he was interesting enough to share with everyone, especially because he has an interesting outlook & approach to the world around us. We get so busy & wrapped up in our daily routine that we often forget to think of things outside us, let alone contemplate or feel connected to it. He has a very unique approach to food energetics & gardening as well. I will definitely chew on some of Steiner's ideas as I work towards building & finishing my spring garden! 
Links at the bottom of the page- comments & ideas welcome!

No man will be satisfied for any length of time with a nourishment that tastes & smells of nothing, regardless of how rich it is in proteins, vitamins, & trace elements.
