Favourite Guilt Free Snack: Homemade Granola Bar

It’s been a while since my last food post so I thought I’d start writing a few posts on my favourite and super easy guilt free snacks that I absolutely love! The first is a homemade granola bar, which is insanely delicious, takes basically no effort to make at all. This recipe is vegan friendly & can be modified to your liking by adding any additional ingredients you might like.
