My kids requested more homemade granola bars for their school snacks so I decided to make them another batch. This time they wanted white chocolate and coconut. I threw in some macadamia nuts and craisins too for a tropical granola bar. My kids loved them. This is a quick and easy recipe with very little cleanup and is fun to do with your kids.Tropical Granola Bars: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
