Is this crisp or chewy, sweet or fruity? It is this mixture of flavours and textures that makes the Granola Bars a treat for kids! It keeps them guessing with every bite, loaded with fibre and protein rich oats and cornflakes, nutritious dry fruits and nuts, all bound together by caramelised sugar.

   Hi Vishaka, Store them in airtight containers. Store them in the fridge to retain their freshness and increase the shelf life. They can be stored for 2-3 weeks.
