Copycat Kind Granola Bars. Loaded with nuts and drizzled with chocolate and sea salt. They taste just like the Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Kind Bars!

During the week granola bars are always my breakfast go to. I have been eating the Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt Kind bars for the past couple of months and decided to try making them at home.
These bars taste EXACTLY like the Kind Bars I love. Perfectly chewy, crunchy, sweet and chocolatey. These bars are perfect as a snack for back to school or as an on the go breakfast.
Just like the Kind Bars I dipped these in chocolate and sprinkled them with sea salt.
These DIY Kind Granola Bars are a lot easier to make than you think. They take only 20 minutes of prep time plus they make over 20 bars!
These bars last for a week in the fridge sealed in an airtight container or plastic bag. I like to individually wrap each one in a snack bag and grab and go throughout the week. They are perfect for breakfast or a snack on the go!
