Soft Baked Granola Bars

A few years ago I recieved a cookbook as a Christmas gift from my mom. The title of this cookbook, Grazing, is perfect for me. I like fun food that I can eat with my fingers.  I like to graze.

I love this granola bar recipe. These are packed full of healthy power foods to create a satisfying snack.
