Yum...Celebrate National Granola Bar Day!


Get this....today is National Granola Bar Day. (FYI, it's also Squirrel Appreciation Day.) To celebrate, I bought a Balance Bare Sweet & Salty Peanut Butter bar (yes, despite those PB recalls Kate mentioned earlier this week). It's a step up from the bars I was addicted to as a kid: Quaker Chewy Granola Chocolate Chip. (Sadly they don't sell them at the kiosk in my office building's lobby.) You know what I realized? I haven't given granola bars (or nutrition bars, same difference to me, though I'm sure that's totally inaccurate and unfair to lump all bars together) enough attention in my go-to snack arsenal since I tired of my obsession Chocolate Pecan Pie Luna Bars a few years ago. Really, the only time I think about granola bars is when I'm at a race expo and I'm greedily grabbing for samples the companies hand out. Kate and I hit the Accenture Chicago Triathlon expo back in August and we stocked up on some yummy samples from Luna, Clif and--my personal favorite of that bunch--LaraBar. Anyway, yum. I have really been missing out by snacking on Chex Mix, er, fruits and veggies.  So get me up to speed...what are your fave bars? Anyone have a good granola bar recipe? Posted by Liz
