Question: Can I make my own granola bars?
I tried to this afternoon with wonderful results.
Easy peasy, and cost friendly too.
I call mine Trail Mix Granola Bars– you will see why in a minute.
Start with one part butter, to one part honey, to two parts brown sugar.
Place in a deep pot over medium heat.
Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
Stir in granola, puffed rice cereal, and any other goodies– I chose golden raisins, chocolate chips, and pretzel rods.
I waited for the mixture to cool until I added the chips– so they would not melt. I just greased up my hands and pressed everything down into a cookie pan with a lip.
Refrigerate– a good hour or so.
Dump pan onto a cutting board and cut into bars. It makes at least 20.
Enjoy one with a cold glass of milk. YUM.
