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.
