It's a fact, kids love to snack. Why not use the opportunity to satiate their cravings and at the same time teach them about healthy food preparation? There are so many ways they can help in the kitchen, from rolling out dough, to mixing the batter, and especially test tasting it!

HALVA GRANOLA BARS

Halva Granola Bars

If you haven't noticed, I am obsessed with halva and its flavor profile. Ever since moving to Israel I am using Silan (date honey) and tahini in and on everything. These granola bars use a little bit of regular sugar, oats, tahini and silan and then you can add anything you want. You can make them gluten free by using gluten free flour.
