So yesterday, I mentioned that my husband and I run an exterior maintenance business. I manage the ‘office side’ of that and he goes out and does the ‘on site stuff”. I am also on lunch box duty – that’s right, he doesn’t really ‘know’ his way around the kitchen nor does he really want to stop and go get lunch if he doesn’t have to. I don’t mind making his lunch – it saves money and tastes way better than some of the options that are out there. That said…I feel like I’m always challenged to keep that lunch box full and semi healthy. Seriously, he eats like there’s no tomorrow and has been blessed with a crazy high metabolism…it’s no wonder where my son gets his crazy appetite from.
Anyhow, I decided to try out these no bake granola bars the other day in hopes that they would make the lunch box cut. And did it ever! Did I mention they are no bake? And made with peanut butter and pretzels? That, my friends, is a really great combo, these are so perfect for an afternoon snack and easy to whip up on the weekend to have on hand all week long. I did double the recipe to fit a 9×13 pan, I mean really, how long do you think an 8×8 pan of granola bars would last at my house? After I cut them, I packaged two together in snack size bags and put them in the fridge for his lunch box. I also put some aside for the kids to snack on – they loved them too!
