Once again, I needed a new snack to liven up the afternoon around here. My kids love granola bars and fruit bars and well really bars of any kind. They also love cookies and to spare you the list of their favorites, they really love cookies of any kind. So, combine the two and it’s a win-win for everybody. Believe it or not, I stumbled across these on Google! Not Pinterest! <gasp> It seems crazy that before there was a pinterest, I used Google to find all sorts of recipes and blogs. Well once again, it didn’t fail me.
These granola bars have the sweet cinnamon sugar taste of a snickerdoodle with the denseness of a chewy granola bar. Add a white chocolate drizzle and it’s a wonderful afternoon snack. I love that it is no bake, although it does need some time to chill and set. I made them right before lunch and had them drizzled and ready for afternoon snack time. In an 8×8 pan, I cut 12 bars. However, after serving (and eating them), I decided that they may be a little much. So I then proceeded to cut the bars in half. Which really made more sense for the small hands that were eating them. I also think that putting them in a bigger pan, so they are thinner could be a good solution as well. All really personal preference though. No matter how you cut them they are super delicious!
