Annnnnnd who wants caramel for breakfast?!
Kind of healthy-ish caramel. It’s a thing.
I was running errands with my youngest the other day and we were STARVING. So we ran into a convenience store to grab a snack really quickly. I thought I’d be able to find an apple or some nuts or a granola bar that was high-fructose-corn-syrup-free (ha!), but… I was totally mistaken. Then I found a row of Kind bars tucked in a corner. Do you ever buy Kind bars? They are all natural and pretty doggone delicious. I grabbed the Salted Caramel Almond variety. Yum.
But at the gas station they are like $2.29 each. Two dollars and twenty nine cents for 1 1/2 bites.
So I slammed a bottle of water and decided I was not all that hungry.
The next day however, I could not get the salty caramel almond thing out of my head, so I made a big batch of this granola with all that same Kind bar-inspired goodness.
