You guys. I didn’t work at all from Friday through Monday, and it was glorious. I brought my work with me to Memphis, but I opted for sleeping in, reading and watching the Olympics instead. I also brought these granola bars with me, tucked into my bag next to my neglected laptop, and I’m so glad I did.
No time for breakfast? Granola bars to the rescue. Hungry on the plane? Granola bars sure beat pretzels. Long stretch between lunch and dinner? Again, granola bars. They kept my blood sugar levels stable, and kept me from turning into a cranky, hypoglycemic mess.
I can attest that these no-bake bars, which are made with oats, nuts, and coconut, and naturally sweetened with honey (or maple syrup) are some effective, energy-rich treats. I’m never traveling without them again. They would also be great snacks for lunch bags and hungry kids who have just arrived home from school. They’re much more tasty and offer more sticking power than any of the store-bought options I encountered as a kid. Granola bars are the answer!
