As college students, we all know that time gets limited, we’re always on the go, and it seems like we’re constantly studying. So in order to keep myself fueled with good, healthy, on-the-go snacks, I eat home made granola bars!

They’re so simple to make and you can substitute any ingredients with whatever nuts, berries, fruits, or sweets you have on hand. The best part is that once you make them, all you have to do is cut them into rectangles, wrap them, and put them in the freezer. Then, they’re ready to take at your convenience.
