These Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Bars are a yummy treat and the perfect kid friendly snack.
School days will be here before we know it! And as you’re buying your school supplies and thinking through the new routines for the school year, remember to plan ahead with your meals, especially lunches and snacks for the kiddos.
With my three tweens, we go through a LOT of food daily, and I try to keep up, not only with feeding them but by keeping us eating healthy and on a budget. Because we stick to a strict grocery budget, we make a lot of our own after-school snacks and “goodies” to pack in lunch boxes.
And because I like my kids to eat whole grains, I adapt recipes to include more fiber and less sugar than they typically have. With these Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Bars, the kids get fiber from the oats and wheat flour while still enjoying a sweet chocolately treat. It’s a win-win!
Older kids like mine can make this recipe on their own, and I’ve been happy to have their help in the kitchen lately. They love to bake, and I love seeing frugal pantry ingredients turn into a healthy, delicious snack. What are your favorite homemade after-school snacks?
