It came to my attentiont that my 10 lb bag of oats
has not gotten that much use lately.
I mean, a girl can only eat so much oatmeal.
So I decided to make granola bars.
Because everyone loves granola bars.
And I could definitely use a quick snack to eat for breakfast.
Homemade Granola Bars
(adapted from Sprinkle With Flour)
3/4 + 1/4 cups oats
1/2 + 1/4 cup cereal
1/2 cup nuts
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
2 tbs oil
5 tbs honey
1/4 cup maple syrup
Preheat oven to 180℃.
Place a cooking sheet on a pan (23x19).
Mix the 3/4 cup of oats, 1/4 cup of cereal,
nuts and raisin in a food processor.
Or, in my case, chop chop away
old school with a knife.
Put in bowl.
Add baking soda,
salt, vanilla, flour, oil, honey,
and maple syrup to the mix above.
Add the remaining 1/4 cup of oats
and 1/4 cup of cereal.
Press mixture into pan.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or
until it's lightly browned on top.
Remove from pan and let it cool.
Cut into bars and enjoy!
*I think next time I'm going to try it with
chocolate chips and marshmallows.
*I think I need to buy a food processor.
But chopping old school wasn't too bad.
