These are great for both the novice and the experienced cook as they aren’t very complicated and are often a forgotten recipe. I know, for me, they were something I was interested in trying but never had until recently. The best part is you can make them however you want and can decide on your own toppings! This would be a great rainy day project with a child.
5 Cups of Granola
1 Cup of Light Brown Sugar
1 Cup of Honey
2 Teaspoons of Vanilla
1 Cup of White Chocolate Bits
1 Cup of Dried Cranberries
Preheat Oven 400 Degrees
In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients together and spread evenly in a greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes
Patience is a virtue I do not have when it comes to wanting to try things directly out of the oven. But with these, you have to let it cool or there is no way you will be able to cut them in to bars.
This is such a great idea for a cooking project with my students! Easy enough to make with the young ones
By the way, would you happen to know of any trendy soaps I could buy online for Mother’s Day? (e.g. the sea shell shaped soaps) Thanks!
Please let me know how the granola bars turn out. The two I can think of are Bathroom http://www.inthebathroom.com/about.html all kinds of special items. Then there is Sabon which is a fun bath line http://www.sabonnyc.com Hope this helps!
Further to Patty’s suggestions (which are both awesome- Sabon is one of my favorites) another great soap place is Lush . They’re a really cool British company and make everything with completely natural, fresh ingredients (with no animal testing). And the packaging is really bright and fun- just an added bonus. Their “bath bombs” are the best!
