    Argh! seriously drop dead gorgeous granola bars. The combination of oats, fruits and chocolate must be a great alternative to cookies and milk.

    I love making bars too. Way more than any other thing because they’re so much faster to make than cookies, pies, etc. These have great texture that I’d love! pinned
