Special K Granola Bars Giveaway

Special K just launched their first ever Special K Granola Bars in Dark Chocolate and Chocolatey Peanut Butter.

Both flavors are excellent; chewy, chocolate, and peanut butter can do no wrong in my book.

Special K Granola Bars deliver lower calories and fat (3g of fat and 110 calories) than some other bars on the market.

They have 4g of fiber and 4g of protein and they’re a convenient for refueling on-the-go.

I always keep a snack bar in my purse and one stashed in the car for those must-have-something-now moments that can strike without warning. for either me or the little peanut.

I try to make homemade snack bars to save money and control the ingredients whenever possible.

Here are a few favorites:

Microwave Chocolate Peanut Butter & Oat Snack Bars (vegan, GF, soy-free) – small batch, makes just 3 bars

No-Bake Vegan Peanut Butter Protein Bars (no cook, vegan, GF, soy-free)

Peanut Butter and Jelly Chocolate Protein Fudge (vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, no refined sugar added)

Did I mention I love Special K cereal?

Yes, I am a huge fan and one of my all-time favorite desserts are my Grandma’s Special K Bars (No-Bake).

I grew with eating these gooey bars made with peanut butter, butter, Special K, and chocolate.

These Nutter Butter Special K Bars (No-Bake) take Special K cereal to the next level by incorporating blended Nutter Butter cookies.

    My favorite snack bar is still Nature Valley’s Oats & Honey.. it’s great by itself or crumbled and layered with some yogurt and fresh berries for a quick DIY parfait! :)

    My favorite cereal is Waffle Crisp. I know, terrible for you and so full of chemicals…but so tastey! My dream is to make a healthy and non-chemical full equivalent someday

    My favorite bar recipe? Is that a trick question…cause, let me see how many link backs to your site I can post! :-)

    For example, I LOVE these:

    these are KILLER:
    http://www.loveveggiesandyoga.com/2012/02/caramel-and-chocolate-gooey-bars.html

    There really are so many more. The best part? They are easy, my kids love them and they are dense, rich, moist and, did I say easy?
