Store-bought granola bars can come loaded with extra sugar and a ton of calories. But making them at home — where it’s easy to control portion sizes and ingredients — requires little more than oats, dried fruit, and honey. Stir, shape, and mold, then wrap in wax paper for a portable treat on the go.

The Takeaway: Make granola bars at home to save money and create customized flavors.
