Granola Bars

I actually first encountered this granola bar at a BBQ. I know what you’re thinking- What’s a granola bar doing at a BBQ. Well at the time it did make sense- mainly because I had no idea that it was a granola bar. It was served on a dessert platter with cookies and brownies, along with a big bowl of watermelon. I grabbed one, thinking it was a peanut butter chewy bar. Afterwards, I was speaking to the teacher (part of the NEIJS program- read previous post) who hosted the get-together and told her that I wanted the recipe for the oatmeal chewy bar. She was so excited to tell me that it was actually a granola bar, made with under a cup of sugar and with whole wheat flour.

Stroller Cookies

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful summer. Summer has been really busy around here, in a good way! During July, my husband and I worked in a Jewish Medical Ethics and Israel Experience Program in Bayit VeGan. It was a wonderful experience in so many ways! Now in August, we are all
home, and we are trying to make the most of our time together. I was actually contemplating just waiting until summer was done to write a new post, but thanks to my cousin, Yehudis, I was motivated to find the time and do it!
