As a busy mom myself I’m always in the look for new easy recipes that are healthy and most importantly home made for my family.
This is why I have teamed up with Iceland Foods to share with you all this amazing granola bars that are free of the chemicals, and also they are a great idea to make over the weekend and send them for the kids lunches when they go back to school!
Iceland Foods have been airing a TV show called “Eat the week with Iceland’ and on the 02 July- 2017 they launched an episode called “busy moms” sharing a bunch of quick and delicious recipes for busy moms like me! Please make sure to watch it!
We want to share the importance of cooking quick meals that are not only healthy, they are also very tasty and convenient!
Now to the point! I made this bars and they are absolutely delicious and my two boys loved helping me in the kitchen and they also loved eating them all of course!
