Happy 2017! I think that’s the first time I wrote/typed that. We had a very low-key New Year’s Eve this year. We made a trip to IKEA (madhouse) then came home and I made veggie lasagna roll-ups and watched Frozen with Julia. After she went to bed, Bob and I attempted a movie but I think I was asleep by 10:30. Oops. I did get up to watch the ball drop, at least.

NO BAKE CHEWY GRANOLA BARS

Now that the new year is upon us, we have a blank slate to start (or continue) some healthy habits. One change that I made last year, that I’m continuing this year, was to make sure I eat breakfast. It has done wonders for me during my workday. I’m no longer starving and watching the clock until lunch (well, I am…but not because of hunger pangs :)).

I eat something every morning but it is typically in the car on the way to the office. For that reason, a bowl of cereal is out of the question. So, I re-purposed Great Grains® Raisins, Dates & Pecans cereal into these chewy granola bars. Only five ingredients, no added refined sugar, and filling to start my day right – even when I’m on the go.
