After eating granola bars for over three decades, Margaret Barrow decided to stop complaining about her granola-snacking choices and create her own. As the only vegan among her family members and friends, she envisioned making a treat they all could enjoy. She wanted to avoid crumbling, messy granola bars that dropped half-eaten into the bottom of bags and purses. Margaret found a unique way to turn her toasted granola into balls and shared small batches each week with hungry college students and faculty. They all agreed that these granola balls had a chewy texture with a just-right amount of sweetness.
