HOMEMADE LARABARS

I am one of those people who the word “hangry” was invented for. You know, hungry + angry = hangry! :-) Actually, when I get hungry it’s more desperation than anger that I feel. That is why I always have to have some sort of snack on my person at all times. Granola bars are a great option…but recently my daughter-in-law introduced me to Larabars and I have a new go-to emergency snack!
