Fruity & Nutty Granola Bars

Granola BarsI’ve been wanting to make some homemade granola bars for quite some time now and I decided after 3 cups of coffee this morning that today was going to be the day that I made them!  I’m of the belief that if I can make it on my own at home… I have no need for store bought anymore.
