Today I decided to attempt to make homemade granola bars - in an effort to make something that does not contain sugar alcohols and various chemicals.
I've seen many recipes on-line for granola bars but the one that most interested me was one for chewy granola bars - (like the Quaker brand ones). Here's the link to the blog where I found the recipe: http://backtothecuttingboard.com/dessert/no-bake-chewy-granola-bars/
I'm obviously not a food blogger but thought I would share pics of the bars I made - they look almost like bars you would buy! I made 3 batches but only photographed two of them. The first batch I made used some purchased Raspberry Vanilla flavored granola. I simply used 2 cups of that, 1 cup of rice krispies, and the brown sugar, butter, honey syrup. They turned out great so I was encouraged to go one step further - I made my own granola for the next two batches. I used the recipe from the link above. Once the granola was finished, I made a batch of s'more bars - following the directions exactly.
Let me know if you try this recipe - I was so excited at how they turned out.
