Homemade Granola Bars

In an effort to eat better, I've been making more and more of our food from scratch.  Snack food has been tough for me as my boys prefer all of the icky processed snack foods.  I'm working hard to eliminate the processed foods though so I'm always on the lookout for new recipes.

This summer I posted on Facebook asking if anyone had a great granola recipe.  My friend Jenn posted one and I've found it to be incredibly easy and versatile.  One child will sometimes eat it but the other loves them and thinks he is eating cookies.  I like them too because they are packed with protein and give me a sweet snack during the day.

Homemade Granola Bars
By Jenn

2 cups oatmeal (quick or old fashioned)                               
1/2 cup flour (can use whole wheat)                                      
1/2 cup sugar (or honey, or agave, or splenda)                     
1 tsp. baking soda                                                                
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup applesauce (heaping)
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup craisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips
  1. Mix dry ingredients.
2. Add applesauce and peanut butter mixing well.
3. Stir in craisins and chocolate chips.
4. Press firmly (can use a rolling pin) into a greased cookie sheet.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
6. Cut into bars after slightly cool.

Tips (from Jenn):
You can substitute the last two ingredients for lots of different things.  I have used nuts, white chocolate, infused craisins, golden raisins, & dried pineapple.  If you measure the applesauce first, then the peanut butter will just slide out of the cup when you use the same one.    I like to roll them onto greased parchment paper so I can transfer them easily to my cutting board before cutting to save my non-stick pan.

Tommee Tippee Digital Photobook & Giveaway

Tommee Tippee has come out with a fun new digital baby photobook.  Here is how they describe this new photobook:

"...a simple way to capture moments of pregnancy and the birth day through the gathering of Facebook posts, a selection of birthday news and facts and the collection of precious memories through a pregnancy journal."

The best part - it is free!

Many times in the past, when I've had big news to share, I've wanted to save comments from Facebook.  This new photobook does that for you.  It also acts as a great way to document your pregnancy and those first few months of your newborn.

I have reviewed Tommee Tippee products in the past and have always been impressed with their product line.  This new item just adds to the excitement of that line.  In the US, Tommee Tippee products can be purchased at Toys R Us.

In celebration of the new photobook, Tommee Tippee is graciously offering one winner a newborn starter pack.  To enter, tell me your favorite baby product - the one you couldn't live without or you always give as baby shower gifts.

For extra entries, like Tommee Tippee on Facebook and/or follow me via email or RSS.  Please leave a separate comment for each entry.

This giveaway is open until Friday, September 16 at 9 pm CST.  The winner will have 48 hours to respond.
