Tropical Granola Bars
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

Butter a 9 by 9-inch glass baking dish and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spread the oats and macadamia nuts onto a baking sheet pan. Place in the oven and toast for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely. Cut into squares or bars, wrap individually in saran wrap then store in an airtight container for up to a week. Enjoy.
