Most granola bars you buy in the store are high in added sugar, unhealthy fats, and low in fibre. These breakfast bar alternatives contain whole grains, nuts, seeds and spices. Because you add your own ingredients, these bars are so much tastier and better for you. Get creative and change up this recipe with different dried fruit or even a bit of chocolate chips for a treat.
