Yum-O! These are quick and easy . They tasted fresh and moist even 3-4 days kept in an airtight container. I think they are probably as good as the granola you put into them. I used Trader Joe’s Granny’s Apple Granola. Oh my – it tastes JUST like you’re eating apple crisp. But without all the baking. Probably the best granola I’ve had from a box. I liked how it worked here, but feel free to use your homemade granola or favorite store-bought.

1 cup prepared granola
