    Why so many carbs? Many of us need to be carb conscious!

    Hello and thanks for the great recipes! I made the granola bars yesterday – oh so yummy! and I wanted to ask where should we preserve them, in the fridge or outside, and for how many days?

    • Runtastic Team

      Hey Marita, we’re really glad that you like our recipe 🙂 You can store them in the fridge for a few days (4-5).
