Soft and Chewy Gluten-Free Granola Bars

Are you a chewy or crunchy granola bar lover?  Well, if chewy is your jam then you will love these!  Conventional store-bought granola (energy) bars can be very unhealthy and it’s frustrating to me that most people think they’re making a healthy snack choice.  Do you want to know exactly what you’re fueling your body with?  Simple answer…make your […]
