Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Lactation Bars

My lactation granola bar recipe is one of the most popular on my blog, and for good reason. They’re delicious, nutritious, and provide nursing mamas with a boost.

Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola Bars, The Sequel

I’ve been working at the granola bars again.  This time, I went an entirely different route.  The last three times I made them (until I got them right), I went the peanut butter, nut, chocolate route.  And they were crispy and crunchy.  And delicious.  But as good as those were, I was itching to try […]
