Homemade Granola Bars

One year ago my 4 months baby girl had her first 2 front teeth. Now she has 8 teeth and 4 molars and I hope we’re going to take a break until new ones :)
  Few weeks ago I had my first attempt in making teething oat bars and although they tasted good they couldn’t quite hold their shape. Some of you were kind and gave me some recipes you’ve tried. Thank you!
  Yesterday I made this recipe and turned out perfect. Loved the addition of peanut butter and using honey instead of sugar. The recipe called for chocolate chips but since Tiffany doesn’t like chocolate (she only likes Nutella ) I substituted them with chopped almonds.
The finely shredded carrot makes them slightly moist. I baked them just 20 minutes and turned out perfect. Tiffany nibbled on one yesterday in the afternoon and on another one after her breakfast this morning. She LOVES them.
I put the rest in sandwich bags to prevent them from drying out.
I’m thinking next time to add maybe some pumpkin, sunflower or even some pine nuts seeds.
The recipe for these delicious granola bars belongs to Wendy.
Thank you Wendy for being my friend, for sharing your post full of wisdom, for showing us the happiness in the little things that some of us (including me) are too busy to notice. Thank you for reminding us to make a difference and for sharing your wonderful photos with us. Thank you for all the kind words you left on my blog. Thank You!
You can follow Wendy on Facebook.
Thank you all for reading, hope you’ll take the time and read Wendy’s blog.

    The granola bars are looking perfect..they have the look of store bought ones but are packed with homemade goodness. Some of little bigger friends of my daughter have started to loose their milk teeths and now my daughter is eager to loose hers too :)

  5. Carolyn says

    Glad you found a recipe that held together better!. My baby girl still doesn't have that many teeth, as 17 months. She does like granola bars, though, i may have to try these!

  6. Kate @ Diethood.com says

    I love your granolas! I'm gonna make these for Ana! Her first tooth came out at 3 months… and we still have a couple more to go… I feel like she's never going to stop drooling and teething. I feel for them.

  7. Charissa says

    This is soooo great. I really need to make something like this soon…so perfect for popping in your handbag for on the go.

  8. Wendy Irene says

    Awe, thank YOU Roxana!!! I am so happy we have found eachother and become friends. Visiting your blog is a bright spot in my week that I really look forward to, and I can't thank you enough for all the inspiration and smiles you give me with your great work and kind words. The granola bars look beautiful. I am thrilled you liked the recipe :) I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Say hi to your baby girl for me <3

    Thank you for this recipe! You have no idea how much money (and plastic) I'd save if I made my own snack bars.

  10. sheila @ Elements says

    They look wonderful! I just went to Wendy's website to check out the recipe, and I think I'll definitely have to make these…maybe with almond butter. :)

  11. Monet says

    Smile. Such delicious granola bars. I love the idea of adding shredded carrot too. Brilliant! Thank you for sharing your creativity with me! I hope you have a blessed Sunday

  12. Amy Bakes Everything says

    Gorgeous! These sound so yummy and I'm jealous of your cutting skills – mine always come out in different sizes! Great job!

  13. Lizzy says

    So happy that your little one will have a break from teething, but how wonderful to have this fabulous looking granola bar in your arsenal for the next tooth. They sound lovely, Roxana~

  14. Jean says

    I still haven't made my own granola bars–I don't really know why–but they would certainly be better to have around for snacks than the other stuff I buy. They look perfect!

  15. Julie M. says

    Such a delicious looking recipe! I'm always on the hunt for homemade snacks to make for my kids. This one sounds like a winner!

  16. Dionne Baldwin @ Try Anything Once says

    OOo yum granola bars! Thank you for sharing this with me. I love the friends I make through blogging and the support from our friends. I'm going to go check out Wendy now…

    I hope you are having a good weekend!

  17. Chef Dennis says

    those bars look delicious! I love granola but hate buying those premade bars, I need to start making my own, and adding seeds sounds like such a wonderful idea!!
    Glad to hear Tiffany enjoyed these bars, they grow up so quickly, enjoy every day with her!
    Congrats on your top 9 today!!!

  18. Becky says

    Congrats on the Top 9 today!! This is the first time I'm visiting your blog for the first time. I came From chef Dennis FB page. I like your granola bar recipe. i made some, but they wouldn't stay together. NoW, I'll try yours.

    I love the look of your blog. Green is my favorite color:)

  19. shaz says

    Congrats on the Top 9! I've been trying to make my own granola bars (we call them muesli bars) too, and so far mine don't hold together that well. Will try this but might need to tweak the PB in it (nut free policy at kid's school).

  20. Julie Hunt says

    Yummy! I am having a hard time printing the recipe from your blog and from the link to your friend's blog…any ideas?
    thanks! Can't wait to make them.

  21. Dina @ The Dish and The Dirt says

    These look awesome. My 7 month old has no teeth yet (!), but my 2 toddlers would sure love this! Thanks for sharing Wendy's recipe.

  22. Magic of Spice says

    Beautiful granola bars, wonderful idea for a teething little one and grownups too :)
    I will hop over and check out your nomination, congrats!

  23. The Mom Chef says

    Mmmmm, those look and sound fantastic. I love the addition of the carrot, which yes, would add moisture, but even more so, is so, so good for little ones (and us not so little ones too). Many thanks for showing us the fruit of your labor.

  24. CarinE says

    Hey, yours look even better than the store bought! I believe It taste even better than the store bought! and healthier too because not preservative needed! OH you make me want to make it now….(planning to make them tomorrow in the morning, cant wait!)

  25. Sweet U C says

    These sound perfect! My older one's losing her milk teeth and the younger one is teething every day (so it seems) :)

  26. Patricia Walters says

    These may be great but they are not vegan if they include honey which is an animal (bee) product.
