Summertime is road trip time! I remember munching on apples and granola bars for hours on end when my family went on road trips. Instead of making a bunch of pit stops for lunch, we would look forward to the snacks in the car. These days, with so many blogs available with amazing recipes, we can make our own on-the-go road trip snacks that are healthy and super flavorful. Pre-package these lovely little snacks and get ready to hit the road!
