My "Make Every Week Granola Bars"
(are you excited? you should be........)
One of my friends posted this recipe on Facebook awhile back and I had tried so many others with no success, I tried this one too; figuring I had already wasted two containers of peanut butter on nasty mushy bars, what's a little more? Right?!
So, here's the recipe and it is a good one!! As always, I attempted to make it healthier by losing some peanut butter and substituting applesauce for butter BUT it never turns out right. This is
The Actual Original From Facebook Recipe
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. peanut butter
1/2 c. honey
3/4 c. melted butter
1 TBSP. vanilla
3 c. whole oats
1 1/2 c. rice crispy cereal
1/2 c. wheat germ or flaxseed meal
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
Combine first 8 ingredients and then fold in the chocolate chips. Press into greased jelly roll pan (or cookie sheet). Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until set and edges are browned. Cool on wire rack. Allow to stand covered for 1 day. Cut into bars and individually wrap in plastic wrap, store in an airtight container.
Did you notice my Mason Jar Mug? I just had to show one off! My sister called me this past weekend and sent me digging through some old ladies cupboards to find them...What a deal! Paid $4 for six! Beats the ones at Pottery Barn for $25! Anyway, back to cooking.........
My latest love in the kitchen is this:
It only has one ingredient......Gelatin. Period. That's it. No reading long ingredient lists here, folks. All you do is mix up 1/2 cup of boiling water with the gelatin; add your favorite juice and you've got
|It's juice. I swear!|
Although, If you make it with apple juice,
they kinda' look like they should have little labels and be taken to the doctor tomorrow..............if you know what I mean. My kids think it tastes great either way, so have fun trying out these latest recipes and I'll see you soon!
