Teri Clearwater’s Homemade Granola Bars

If you’re looking for a yummy snack alternative to the horse show cafeteria, this blog is it! Back in May, I posted Horse Show Mamas – a comical and informative piece about other horse show moms and how they manage shows with babies and kids in tow. Back then I promised I would post some of my contributor’s best recipes for beating the event  cafeteria. So here, finally, is a tasty snack from show mom and trainer’s wife – Teri Clearwater of Hanley, SK. With all the summer activities and shows, it took me this long to get some baking done. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family did!

HOMEMADE GRANOLA BARS

What You’ll Need:

3 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup Rice Krispies
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins (or Craisins)
1 cup choc chips

3/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup melted butter (not margarine)
