Alhamdulilah our book is done and its available! SubhanAllah it was an exciting process and it was one full of reflection that was much needed.

Homemade Granola Bars

This is our oatmeal, craisins, nuts, chocolate, raisins..wheat germ, flaxseed with cinnamon granola bar .
We mixed it all together... this recipe I found it online, it called for sweet condensed milk..

We did not have it so I made my own with milk and honey which is much better than using so much sugar..

I warmed the mixture over the stove..poured it on top of the oatmeal mix...mixed it some more, put it in the oven for about 20 mins.

 Then we took it out..cut them into bars but then put them in the freezer because I wanted them to get a little harder, it was soft.

 After that it was good alhamdulilah .. the children enjoyed the so much!!

Alhamdulilah enjoy!!
