Yesterday was an unexpected day at home.
Granola bars have been on my
"to try" list and so I tried.
I kinda followed a recipe but
really you could say I just used a recipe
as a reference.
They taste yummy to me!
Here is what I did, after referencing the recipe.
3 cups whole oats
1/2 cup honey
3 Tbsp. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup of a mixture of things I had in my cupboard:
chopped up figs
I then toasted the oatmeal at 350 for 15 minutes
While it was toasting I heated the honey and maple syrup in the microwave
then added the cinnamon and vanilla
After the oatmeal was toasted I stirred in the honey mixture
and then added the fruit and nut mixture.
I then dumped it into a 8 x 8 pan lined with parchment paper
pressed it down and left it cool.
Then I melted chocolate
(maybe a cup of chocolate chips)
and spread it on the cooled oatmeal in the pan.
After that set up
I flip the whole thing out and then
I cut it into bars and
melted more chocolate and
drizzled it over the bars!
Next time maybe I will add some peanut butter and chocolate chips.
I do think that that the chocolate on the
bottom helped them stay together.
I think they are tasty and I think they are kinda healthy!
