These gourmet granola bars are not just chewy, soft and delicious, but they also help provide meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
Available in 12 different kinds, including Blueberry Almond, Cranberry Apple Pecan, Pina Colada and Strawberry Lemonade, these granola bars are baked with love by Kando Bakery co-founders Valerie Peterson and Elena Nulle, and then labeled with care by their employees with disabilities.

Kando Bakery was recently featured on CBS Chicago. Watch this interview with the co-founders of Kando Bakery to learn more:
