The kids are going to love getting these Pebbles Cereal Granola Bars in their lunch. You’ll love that they are packed with flaxseed, nuts, and dried fruit.
Fruity Pebbles Granola Bars
I love the idea of easy and healthy snacks in my daughter’s lunch box. Most of the time, I go for convenience and just pull “stuff” out of box and put it in her lunch box.
This year, I hope to do better and make more of her lunch snacks at home.
So, for a Back to School Lunchbox idea, what could be better than granola bars?
I wanted to add a lot of healthy nuts, oats, and flaxseed to my granola bars to counter the sweetness of the cereal, dried fruit and honey.
I packed these full of Pecans, Macadamia Nuts, and Almonds!
I also tossed in some extra Flaxseed for the added Omega-3 and fiber.
The dried Mango and Pineapple complemented the Fruity Pebbles and, let’s face it, looked pretty.
Holding all of this goodness together is butter, honey, and corn syrup.
I got a majority of the ingredients from Walgreens. I admit, I don’t do grocery shopping at Walgreens, but when I got in there, I was amazed at what I found.
I picked up my Post Fruity Pebbles, Old Fashioned Oats, pecans, almonds, mango and pineapple at Walgreens. Everything else, I had at home already.
One of the great things about Pebbles is that it’s Gluten Free. You can make these granola bars gluten free by purchasing specialty oats.
I hope you and your little one enjoy making these Fruity Pebbles Granola Bars.
