The granola bar is one of most tried and true methods of snacking out there on the market with a bevy of variations to the original style available for purchase or to do-it-yourself. While the granola bar has something of a health-oriented origin, the addition of mouthwatering ingredients like chocolate has made it applicable for mainstream appeal.

Although the notion of granola bars with chocolate or other unhealthy indulgences may lead one to believe that they've lost all nutritional value, many recipes incorporate wholesome ingredients that rival their manufactured counterparts. Generations young and old take well to the concept of granola bars, as the familiar nature of the snack makes it a clear choice to either pickup readymade or create one's own variation in the kitchen.
