Traditionally, I’m all about my granola bars being super crunchy and able to withstand a rough day in my day bag. Today however, I decided to make these soft, chewy and a bit crumbly. I can’t tell you how many times I see Steve headed to the fridge late night looking for anything to snack. He ends up munching granola with milk almost every single time. These bars are the perfect cereal AND work out bar. They hold together a bit and crumble really easily, making for the perfect breakfast, snack or late night dinner. Paired perfectly with almond milk or a great workout, these will save your life.
I added ashwaghanda to these to give you a little extra support with stress during busy days. It’ll help keep you serene and V balanced. Learn more about this ancient Ayurvedic superfood here.
