  1. Sweet! I'm excited to try these. What is the difference between the breakfast bars and the granola bars? (I know the ingredients are different, but is the consistency similar, etc?)

  2. The granola bars are like a quaker oats granola bar, the breakfast bar is like a no bake chocolate cookie. I hope that helps.
