Butterscotch Whole Wheat Granola Bars and May Tasty Tool: Stand Mixers

For this week’s before workout snack I wanted to make granola bars. I used my previous recipe, but changed it up a bit. Here is the recipe I came up with and found them to be very filling and very delicious!

I am also submitting this recipe to Joelen’s Culinary Adventures May Tasty Tools blog event! Check out her blog at the end of the month for all the great stand mixer recipes!

ENJOY!
