Healthy Homemade Granola. Childrens Lunch Box Ideas

When granola is served in our house there are happy faces all round. These yummy ‘Homemade Heathly Granola‘ are perfect for children’s packed lunches, not even a crumb comes home from school which is proof the little ones love them too. A delicious, healthy snack which satisfies any sweet cravings and mid afternoon lulls.

The recipe is rammed full of oats, seeds and dried fruit and we use natural ingredients to bind it all together creating a bar of sweet, sticky loveliness. OK, so these bars crumble a little round the edge when cutting to serve, as do most homemade granola bars, just pop the crumbly bits in an airtight container. I can assure you they’ll soon be eaten and we have a lovely suggestion on how these tasty crumbs can be used below.
