granola bar recipe review
After I posted these fruit and nut bars, Beth suggested this recipe for granola bars. I'd love to have 3 or 4 go-to bar recipes, so I tried it. I can give an honest and thorough review at this point because I've been taking them for my snack at work for the last couple of weeks. They are great! I love that they are no-bake, that they hold together very well in a thick bar shape, and that they keep at length. I pressed mini-chocolate chips into the top of mine, but you could easily omit that. These are dense, heavy, and filling. I really need that in my mid-morning snack because I don't eat lunch until after 1pm. These hold me. I wrapped mine individually in waxed paper and stored them in a tin in the refrigerator, but you could freeze them just as well. Just let them come to room temp before eating (otherwise they are a bit hard). Thank you Beth!
Next up: these. Maybe experimenting with homemade granola bars should be on my summer list!
