We are headed to Iowa today. After a week in Wisconsin, it is time to start the drive home. On the way we get to spend a couple days with friends in Iowa. My 7 year old is super excited to see his old friends again. He has adjusted amazingly well to Colorado, but still remembers what we left behind. I am excited to get to see my friends too, should be a great weekend.
Once we get back home it will be time to get back to eating better again. Vacation always derails me. I will have to stock the fridge with these granola bars again, so I have something I won’t feel guilty eating. I have been wanting to try Almond Butter, and finally I bought a jar at Costco a few weeks ago. I adapted another Granola Bars recipe we loved, and used the Almond Butter. My son loved them. I was honestly surprised, there is a lot of almond flavor, but he ate them like crazy!

- 1/2 cup Almond Butter
