My kids LOVE cereal, but what they love even more than cereal is snacking.

It doesn’t matter what form that snack takes on, if it’s a ‘snack’, they want it. They caught on to my carrot stick “snack” trick fairly quickly, but they are my children and seem to be pretty smart so far. 😉

Using pre-made granola saves me the time and hassle of making my own, and this saves me the mess that is inevitably left behind when 4 elementary aged boys get cereal and milk, and it is much easier to take on-the-go when we need to go and run some errands too. These will also be perfect to send in their lunch boxes to school, or for school snacks.

This is a pretty basic bar recipe. Melted marshmallows, butter, and lots of granola mixed in.

Make sure to compress the bars as much as you can to help hold them together.

I stuck mine in the freezer for a few minutes also to firm them up before I sliced them.
