Frugal Snacks!

I'm tired of trying to find coupons for the chewy granola bars! They are good for the kids and they love them, but they ARE expensive. Especially since they went form 6 in a box to now 5! With two kids that means I have to buy extra boxes of them. Boooo~

So I found my own awesome recipe on www.allrecipes.com

These are jammed pack with goodness: cranberries, chocolate chips, coconut, sliced almonds and rolled oats. They are ooey gooey good and the kids love them too. These will last me a week, easily! YAY!

I have also stopped buying boxed cookies. Nothing beats a homemade cookie. I don't care how busy I am, I always have time to make haystacks! The best part: there is NO BAKING involved. YAY!

How's that for 20 minutes of work for at least a week's worth of snacks?
