Hello again Heather! I left a comment this morning on your granola bar recipe and had to tell you how much we enjoy this one as well. We have this at least a couple of times a month. It freezes well, and I almost always have a supply of individual servings in the freezer for those days when there aren't any available leftovers to have for lunch. I know that I can trust your recipes to turn out well.
Thanks again!
