I love the idea of easy and healthy snacks in my daughter's lunch box. Most of the time, I go for convenience and just pull "stuff" out of box and put it in her lunch box. 
This year, I hope to do better and make more of her lunch snacks at home.

So, for a Back to School Lunchbox idea, what could be better than granola bars? 

I wanted to add a lot of healthy nuts, oats, and flaxseed to my granola bars to counter the sweetness of the cereal, dried fruit and honey.

I packed these full of Pecans, Macadamia Nuts, and Almonds! 

I also tossed in some extra Flaxseed for the added Omega-3 and fiber.

The dried Mango and Pineapple complemented the Fruity Pebbles and, let's face it, looked pretty.

Holding all of this goodness together is butter, honey, and corn syrup.

I got a majority of the ingredients from Walgreens. I admit, I don't do grocery shopping at Walgreens, but when I got in there, I was amazed at what I found.

I picked up my Post Fruity Pebbles, Old Fashioned Oats, pecans, almonds, mango and pineapple at Walgreens. Everything else, I had at home already.

One of the great things about Pebbles is that it's Gluten Free. You can make these granola bars gluten free by purchasing speciality oats. 

I hope you and your little one enjoy making these Fruity Pebbles Granola Bars.
