Summer Snacks: Key Lime To-Go Jars with Golden Girl Granola

Winner of the 2018 Golden Girl Granola Blogger Challenge

The Problem…
As a working mom, who’s always on the go, having portable snacks and meals is a necessity.  However, too often, those portable snacks and meals aren’t the healthiest.  Granted, I love a bag of chips, a Slurpee, and a hot dog as much as the next mom, but giving them to my kids on a daily basis is sorta frowned upon.

The solution…
I create my own snacks and meals that I can keep in the refrigerator and grab as we run out the door.  By now, everyone’s seen (and had) salads made in Mason & jelly jars, and I love them, but every once in a while, I need something a bit sweeter and filling.

My answer…
With a little prep and the help of Golden Girl Granola, layering pudding, yogurt, or my favorite, pie filling into jelly jars makes a delicious, nutritious, snack to-go.  For this recipe, I’ve taken my favorite key lime pie filling, cooked in on the stove top, and layered it with Golden Girl Original Granola.

The result…
This Key Lime Pie To-Go is a perfect balance of sweet & tart with a little crunch from the layers of natural, artisan granola.
