These granola bars are so tasty they’re almost like cookies! Now nobody has to miss out on granola bars just because they can’t eat oats! Buckwheat groats make these bars just as deliciously crunchy as a traditional granola bar. I’m sure you could add all sorts of other goodies to them as well like dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate (or Carob) chips! Let me know what your favorites are!
