These ingredients are just a base for the recipe.  If we don’t have something in the house – we go without it! Sometimes we add in sunflower seeds or other seeds/nuts we have.  When you get creative it adds life and character to the bars.  Each batch is different – which is another thing I love about them.  We added pumpkin spice one batch due to having no cinnamon and it has become a consistent part of our batches now! 

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix ingredients and spread into a 12″x18″ cookie sheet.  If you are using different sized cookie sheets, that’s ok. Just make sure that the bars are about ½ thick. WET YOUR HANDS when pressing the mixture flat into the cookie sheet. This prevents it from sticking to your hands.
  3. Bake for 11 minutes.
  4. Take out of oven and cut into desired sized squares.  We generally cut ours about 3”x5”.
  5. Place in a Tupperware of your liking (we use a box shaped container that now lives in our freezer as the designated “granola bar box”).
  6. Put Tupperware in freezer – you can do this even while they are still warm. (the freezing process has proven to be vital in keeping the bars together!!)
  7. When ready to eat, take out and enjoy.  You don’t have to eat them right away – if they thaw, they will not fall apart.  The initial freeze has already worked it’s magic!)

NOTES:

I take 2 with me to work in a little plastic bag.  They are not cold/frozen when I eat them.  I do not put anything on mine – but Michael prefers them with peanut butter!  Again, get creative!

Last but not least:

If for some reason this recipe does not work for you, contact me! I would LOVE to help figure out what’s missing or what needs to be added to your bars.  Once you master the process, it’s simple!
