Here’s a granola bar recipe that was a huge hit with my family.

I made these the other night. The whole family went to bed and I just was not tired.

I went to the pantry and thought about making one of the granola bars that’s already on the blog.

I started taking out ingredients and saw a brand new bag of organic sunflower seeds.

So, I took it from there.

My whole family was very happy to wake up to these sunflower seed granola bars.

My son took a couple to school and my hubby to his office.  I enjoyed one with my morning coffee. 

We all loved the nutty texture and still nice and moist.

Give them a try. It’s an easy recipe and very wholesome.
