A few weeks back I posted a granola bar recipe, but I’ve since found another we like even better. I found this recipe at Musings of Home and Hearth and I’ve altered it just a tad.
Granola Bar Recipe II
1/2 stick real butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter (or, you know, a large spoonful)
3/4 to 1 cup Sucanat
3 T raw honey
1 t vanilla extract
1 c soft wheat pastry flour (this is lighter in texture and flavor than regular whole wheat)
1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 c rolled oats
1 c mini-chocolate chips
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and Sucanat. Add honey, vanilla, egg. Beat well. Combine dry ingredients, stir into creamed mixture. Fold in oats, and chips. Press into a GREASED 9×13 pan. Use buttered hands to get it spread evenly.
Bake 25 minutes at 350 or until the top is lightly browned. Remove from oven, let cool about 10 minutes in the pan, then cut the bars but do not take them out until they’re cooled. Otherwise they break easily.
Here’s a batch I just overcooked. Hey, just keeping it real, y’all.
