One thing that I wanted to make sure of with our recent road trip is that we would have delicious and healthy snacks to take along. It’s so easy for me to get sucked into convenience store food, and once I start a vacation eating poorly it pretty much means the rest of the trip will follow suit. This trip I made this incredible
crack snack mix and then dove into the most recent issue of Cooking Light for some sweet inspiration.
I decided to go for it with these Chewy Coconut Granola Bars, and I’m SO glad I did! The only changes I made were using oat flour (grind oatmeal in a food processor til it forms a flour) in lieu of the all purpose and whole wheat flours, and using dried cranberries instead of mixed tropical fruit (it was what I had on hand). The result were indulgently rich and chewy bars that we could have after lunches or eat instead of a convenience store candy bar. Delicious!
