Homemade LÄRABARs (in China)

One of our friends while we were in China would frequently open her heart, home and fridge for us.

One Saturday, we helped her make yummy homemade LÄRABARs. By helped, I mean that we watched and tasted. She regularly makes these for quick breakfasts on the go and healthy snacks. I miss that girl xoxo.
