If you want to make amazing homemade chips, use a Simple Slicer to easily get fruits or vegetables sliced thinly and evenly for perfectly crisp chips. V-Shaped Baking Pans provide larger surface areas for baking your chips than regular baking sheets.

Making your own yogurt bars, granola bars—or even chocolate bars—means you control the ingredients and you get to supply the creativity. The Snack Bar Maker is made of silicone which lets you make snack bars that go in the freezer or get baked in your oven.

Quick Stovetop Granola

This granola recipe comes together quickly on your stovetop. By making it yourself, you control the amount of sugar and the mix-ins. Try using coconut oil, olive oil, or butter in place of canola oil. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, pepitas, or sunflower seeds can be used instead of pecans, and the cherries can be swapped out for other dried fruits such as raisins or cranberries.
