This easy granola bar recipe is a sponsored post brought to you by Graceland Fruit.
Who is ready for a new EASY recipe? Well I finally have one for you. Life has been crazy lately so my time in the kitchen has been all about quick and easy while still being healthy.
My entire family is all about snacking and having easy to grab foods for on the go whether it’s work, a playdate, post swim lessons or a fun family outing. While we love to grab fresh fruit because honestly what could be easier but we love to have something that isn’t just fruit. That is why I am just loving these new bars.

How easy was that recipe? I really love the addition of Graceland Fruit
dried blueberries and cherries but you can easily customize these bars based on what you have on hand. These bars would be great with nuts and seeds or even swap the peanut butter for your other favorite nut or seed butter.
You could also form the mix into little balls instead of bars. They also travel really well. Grab them from the freezer and toss in a lunch bag and go. Quick, easy and delicious!
