Chewy Granola Bars

I wanted to make a big, fancy two layer yellow cake today, but reality set in and I realized I wouldn’t have time to go buy cake flour and frosting ingredients. That, plus we’re still working on the pie from a few days ago (I froze pieces individually). Luckily, I did have a hodgepodge of […]

Honey Trail Mix Bars

If you’ve been searching for the perfect chewy granola bar, here’s a recipe worth saving. It’s adapted from Olivia Dupin’s fabulous cookbook The Complete Guide to Naturally Gluten-Free Foods, which has become one of my favorites as of late. Everything I’ve tried so far has been fantastic, and the book is an interesting read. Subtitled […]

Quinoa Bars

A few weeks ago I bought some tri-color quinoa from the bulk food section at Whole Foods. After grinding most of it into flour to use in quinoa chocolate chip blondies, I started thinking about ways to use the rest and came up with these bars.  Because they were experimental, I made them in a […]

Chewy Wheat Bran Granola Bars

My grocery store recently moved the unprocessed wheat bran from the bulk section to the cereal aisle. The downside is it’s now in a box, so it costs a little more. The upside is that the box, which happens to be Hodgson Mill brand, has a bunch of good recipes on the back. This is […]

No-Bake Granola Bars

granola bars

I used to think granola bars should be made with raw oats, nuts, seeds and sugar and that making them with prepared granola was just redundant. However, now that I’ve become fanatical about making homemade granola and have loads and load of it in the freezer, I’ll use it any way I can. The latest […]

Next time you have half a can of condensed milk to use up, consider this recipe. I tried it yesterday, and while the granola bars were not my personal favorite, they weren’t awful. They taste better today, plus close to 462 people thought they were really swell.  It’s probably just me, but I thought the […]

If I don’t accomplish anything else today, at least I can go to bed knowing I used up the rest of yesterday’s condensed milk. Today’s cookie was a granola bar. Eagle brand has a recipe on their site, but I didn’t want to use peanuts and I wanted a much smaller batch, so …
