Granola bars are so easy to love—pleasantly crumbly or chewy-fudgy, studded virtuously with dried fruit and toasty oats or less virtuously (but maybe more joyfully) with chocolate chips. But the store-bought ones are often super-sweet and almost always more expensive than it would be to make similar ones (even, dare we say, better ones) at home. Plus, when you take matters into your own hands, you can tailor the bars to your specific snacking preferences. And we think we've got one for anyone! Here are 10 snack bars to make at home:
