Jeena! I've missed you and your posts! These would be delicious with my morning tea. I made some granola bars a while back but they didn't look nearly as yummy as yours. Great post, Jeena.

These look good, and so healthy too. I just got a jar of honey from a local beekeeper, this recipe will be a great way to use some up.

Jenny said...

Your pictures are perfect Jeena. Makes me want to drop what I'm doing and make granola bars!

Alex said...

hi jeena,

first of all, your website is AMAZING! i often find that on other recipe sites, i have to tweak ingredients until they meet my nutrition expectations, but yours are already perfect!

anyway, question about the bars: how long do they keep, either in or out of the fridge?

Jenna!!! Awesome pictures. I thought the scroll bar in my browser was never going to reach the bottom. I love it.. Great bar recipe... Can I have 4 please?

zesty :)

Maria said...

Your bars look so scrumptious! The perfect healthy snack!

Jeena said...

Thanks so much everybody I'm glad you like them. :-)

Alex they will keep a few days in an air tight container in a cool place.

In our house they don't last much longer than a day so I never get chance to truly see how long they keep.

Hope this helps. :-)

Hello Jeena, your recipe sure looks great! Do you get a chewy or crunchy texture of bars? The pile looks so delicious.
