granola bars

Brad and I eat granola bars most mornings for breakfast so I decided I would like to try making my own.  They are just about as easy as buying them, taste better and are much better for you.  Plus, they are much less expensive!

I used this recipe as a template. 

I added cinnamon, a touch of vanilla, peanut butter chips, raisins and sliced almonds.  I used 1/3 cup of honey but I think I should have used more.  These were very crumbly so I am going to have to experiment with more 'glues.'  Other recipes have suggested mashed bananas (not for me but will probably work), peanut butter or apple sauce.  The possibilities are endless for additions!

If you have any suggestions, let me know!

Try a couple egg whites (or 1 beaten egg). You don't necessarily need more honey - but try some olive oil. Nut butters help too! Num num!
