I've been making homemade granola bars for my family for a couple years now and this is becoming one of my all time personal favorites. Use it as a crust for pies, put a scoop of ice cream on top, crumble it up in yogurt or eat it by itself for a yummy snack. Also freezes well!!

Pistachios & cranberries ~ Got my attention right away, AND the fact that they're included in a granola bar, well, that tops it off right there! These are very easy to make & taste great as well! We find these convenient for a quick breakfast or a daytime snack AND the recipe is a real keeper, too! [Made & reviewed in Let's P-A-R-T-Y! December Cooking Event]
