I’m back from the Caribbean, and I’m missing it already! After spending a week on a catamaran in the sunshine looking out over the clearest water I’ve ever seen, San Diego’s cloudy day seems a little lackluster.

Are you a homemade granola bar person, or more of a grab-and-go from the box type? To be honest, I haven’t been the biggest granola bar person in general for most of my life – I just prefer to sit down and eat a real meal than something on the go.

But, as we all know, sometimes grab and go has got to do. For those times, I loooove having a batch of homemade granola bars on hand, and I usually have a healthy, homemade bar of some sort hanging out in my fridge or freezer for those times. [Read more…]
