S’mores Granola Bars

Well, these disappeared quickly.

I’d barely put these s’mores granola bars in the freezer before I found they were gone. My family devoured them in about a day. Fortunately, they’re a pretty wholesome snack– not bad for something with s’mores in the name. 😉

With nutritious ingredients like oats, pure maple syrup, and nut butter, you don’t feel bad about splurging a little bit on marshmallows and chocolate chips. A healthy snack that feels like dessert? You can’t beat that!

A note on the nut butter: cashew and almond butter provide a more neutral taste, but peanut butter is delicious here, too– it just turns them into peanut butter s’mores granola bars, and there’s nothing wrong with that! 🙂

Thinking Out Loud

  1. Currently Reading: Jeremy Poldark by Winston Graham. I just bowed to the inevitable; I was definitely going to reread the whole series. 😉
  2. I can’t even believe it, but I still don’t have a working oven. SAD FACE.
  3. CURLY KITTENS. Just unbelievably adorable. As a curly girl, I welcome all curly creatures into the fold.
