Josephine's No-Bake Granola Bars

Rated as 4.64 out of 5 Stars

"A quick and yummy way to start the morning. You probably have all the ingredients right in your pantry. You can use your imagination to add other dried fruits, sesame seed, or other nuts, wheat germ, etc. Maple syrup or light corn syrup can work as sweetener substitutes for the honey."
