These little bites have become a favorite at our house. They're the perfect combination of nutty, sweet, chewy, chocolaty goodness. My kids loves to grab a few for a snack in the afternoon or after dinner for a treat. They're just right for popping into little mouths.
I rarely buy granola bars anymore due to a peanut allergy in our home. Peanut free granola bars are hard to find, expensive, and full of undesirable additives, but I feel good about my kids eating these homemade bites full of good-for-you ingredients.
