After 2 weeks of over eating, I am trying to start as I mean to go on with lots of healthy recipes and snacks for the boys. Each day the boys are required to take a 'healthy' snack to school to have at morning playtime. Most of the time I give them a slice of banana loaf, a muffin or a bag of plain popcorn, but when in a rush and the baking tins are empty I often give them a a bought granola/biscuit bar ('Natures Valley' I think). These bars don't come cheap, so I thought I'd make my own.
I used a favourite oaty biscuit (cookie) recipe and packed the mixture tightly into a square tray before baking and then sliced them into bars.
Transportation is often a problem when sending home baking into school. I usually put the item into a small paper bag, but as I didn't have any to hand I wrapped the bars in greaseproof paper and sealed with a sticker - all ready to pop into their school bags - one less thing to think about in the morning.
