Granola Bars Types

Snack bars have much different texture from crunchy, chewy, hard, or soft. Therefore, to make the bar chewy, do add eggs to the mixture to make the snack soft. Furthermore, for a crispy bar, make the mixture is spread thinly and evenly on a baking tray. Press down firmly with something hard to take a more perfect shape. Additionally, a granola bar is fun to make by using dried fruits, or by dipping them in chocolate syrup.

Freezer Homemade Granola Bar

There are times where my children do not eat as much as I thought. Or, when I need it I don’t have time to make a granola bar. What I did is to freeze the bars, to prevent wasting food. By freezing these snacks, they do last longer. I can take them out whenever I need them. Wrap individual bars with plastic wrap. Then, place in a freezer bag. Try to remove all air out of the bag before zipping it up. Put the freezer bag in a flat part of the freezer. The granola bar needs a couple of hours to defrost. Do try making these gluten-free lemon granola bars for yourself.
