They sell something almost exactly like this at our natural food store. I can't wait to make it at home. I love little snacks like this to carry in case I get hungry when traveling. They would also make a simple snack for my daughters afterschool.

hi bl wilkey and miss amy o:

these cranshews are definitely great for travel. especially if you keep them in the freezer until you leave the house. i took a bar with me to a class i was taking in the spring--every day--great for my 4pm slump!!
