Fruit Kabobs

We have been making these all summer. I usually just put an assortment of fruit out and let the kids create. They also like to add in one large marshmallow as well. They are a fun, healthy snack that my kids love!

Granola Bars

My cousin made up this recipe... they are great for a quick breakfast and my kids love them, though I omitted the craisins.

1. 3 Cups Quick oats
2. 1 Cup Sunflower seed
3. 1 cup Peanuts (optional)
4. ½ Cup Flax Seed
5. ½ Cup Millet
6. 2/3 Cup Coconut
7. ¾ Cup Brown Sugar
8. 1 Cup Honey
9. 5 TBSP Butter
10. 1 Cup Peanut Butter
11. ½ Kosher Salt
12. 2 tsp vanilla
13. 6 oz craisins
14. ½ bag White Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix the first 6 ingredients and place onto a large cookie sheet and place in oven. Brown stirring every 5-7 minutes for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile place ingredients 7-11 in a pan and melt together until sugar is dissolved on medium low heat. Combine the toasted ingredients with the melted ingredient and stir in craisins and vanilla. Line a large cookie sheet with wax paper and pour mixture into pan. Cover with wax paper and press HARD. Let cool until cool to the touch uncover and sprinkle white chocolate chip on the top, recover and press again. Let cool completely, cut and wrap in plastic wrap.
