Healthy Chewy Homemade Carrot Banana Granola Bars

Healthy Chewy Homemade Carrot Banana Granola Bars

These granola bars are great for an easy breakfast. When I'm in a hurry to get my kids off to school, sometimes it's a challenge to feed myself. I'm so focused on getting the kids ready. I'm always helping them get all they need for their day and getting them out the door on time. If I can grab something healthy like these granola bars to munch on with coffee while I help the kids in the morning, it's a perfect fix for me. I also love these bars with tea in the afternoon as a snack. I love chai tea especially, and these bars are yummy with a mug of tea. It's also a kid-friendly recipe!
