M&M granola bars are sweet without being too sweet. They are a fun snack or dessert for both kids and adults.
M&M Granola Bars
We are only a few weeks away from moving. So this past weekend, I took on the challenge of beginning to clean out our freezer and kitchen cabinets.
As I was going through our freezer, I found up to 10 fun sized packs of M&Ms my daughter, Charlie, had gotten for her birthday. M&Ms ("Meemees" as she likes to call them) are her favorite!! But there is no way she will eat (be allowed to eat) all of those M&Ms by the time we move so I had to come up with something to do with them.
That’s when I got the idea to make some fun granola bars out of them. These granola bars aren’t too sweet and are a semi healthy treat for her to enjoy.
They are only a few ingredients and super simple to make. I added coconut just because I have some I need to get rid of, but you definitely can leave it out if you are not a coconut fan.
I cut them into 16 bars, making them a perfectly portioned (145 calorie per bar) snack. I hope you and your kids can have some fun in the kitchen making these soon. They are both kid and adult approved!
