My daughter and I won an award at our local fair for these peanut-butter-and-granola bananas. I like to assemble the ingredients ahead for my kids to whip up when they get home from school. Sometimes we substitute rice cereal as a crunchy alternative to the granola bars. -Diane Toomey, Allentown, Pennsylvania

"Your kids will appreciate the diabetes you can get from this recipe.

Get rid of the processed sugar, commercial granola bars and simply spend some time in the kitchen with natural ingredients It is not hard.
Who was the contest for? Your daughter or you?"
