Recipe-Homemade Strawberry Nutri-Grain Bars

I”m a swimmer and swimmers eat lots of food, and I mean lots of food. I probably eat more meals/mini-meals/snacks than Hobbits (they eat 7). So when I’m going to a swim meet I make sure to take lots of snacks. Typically I take bars, chex mix, fruit, and lots of other stuff. Instead of buying bars this time I decided to try out some homemade bars.

Some of my favorite bars are the Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars. However they are expensive. My sister had pinned a recipe for Homemade Nutri-Grain Bars so I thought I’d try them and see if they were similar. They turned out great; everyone in my family liked them.

The recipe for the bars can be found here from Half-Baked Harvest. However, I didn’t follow her recipe exactly. She made her own filling. Since I’m lazy efficient I chose to use Strawberry Jam instead of making my own. I used about 3/4 cup per batch and I made two batches. Other than that I followed her recipe and my family wants them again. Sounds like it was a hit.

Unfortunately, mine didn’t turn out nearly as pretty as hers. As you can see from the picture below, taken right before I put them in the freezer to chill.

However, after coming out of the oven they looked much better, still not perfect though.

So now you have one more recipe to make and one less processed food you have to buy. Enjoy!
