My kids are back to school this week after a loooooong winter break. This means I’m back to making lunches in a hurry on school mornings again. To be honest, I’m not the mom who prepares lunches the night before. Instead, I’m more like a fly by the seat of my pants mom who doesn’t have a clue what to pack until 7:00am when it’s utter chaos in the kitchen. Maybe you can relate?

My kids BEG me to put granola bars in their lunches. But not any granola bar. They want the super expensive, microscopic granola bar that doesn’t satisfy them in the least. In fact they can eat a whole box in one day and still be hungry if I don’t stop them. Last week I told them no more. These granola bars are tasty, but they are too expensive and don’t even fill them up! Reluctantly they are allowing me to find a few healthy granola bar recipes that we can make at home this week. I mean, they don’t hold out a lot of hope that I can pull this healthy homemade granola bar thing off, but they’re willing to let me take a crack at it.

So nice of them, huh?

I’ve put together a list of 21 healthy granola bar recipes for inspiration and will be trying these over the next couple of weeks to save money and sanity as I navigate my children’s granola bar addiction. Perhaps these healthy granola bar recipes will help you, too? I hope so!

Happy lunch packing!
