So, I am a college student taking a summer class and I am insanely LAZY when it comes to preparing food....especially breakfast.
With a three hour class to go to, I drag myself out of bed and just go to school.....starving. So instead of staring at the refrigerator every morning and shrugging my shoulders...deciding to starve, I've decided to make something I could just grab and go every morning. GRANOLA BARS!
These things are so effin' delicious....that I'm giving you all the recipe!
NOW..this is NOT aka "MY" recipe. I got it online, but do not follow it exactly. I will give the link below. 1) GET the ingredients!
Which are: 4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
AND WHATEVER YOU LIKE!!! I just throw in chocolate chips, raisins, dried cherries, dried blueberries, dried cranberries, dried mango, and chopped walnuts!2) MIX that stuff up in a bowl!
No, no. You better not lick that damn spoon!3) PRESS that delicious mix in a pan!
Okay, okay, maybe you can get a lick.
I put my mixture in a butter sprayed "glass pan" (?). I hate stuff sticking.4) BAKE at 325 degrees F for 18-22 minutes.
I do 22 mins of course. 5) TAKE out and let cool for 10 minutes, then cut into bars.
I use a pizza cutter. 6) ENJOY!
WAIT, don't throw those crumbs away that are left in the pan...make cereal! Just add some milk!
Hope you love 'em as much as me!http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/Chewy-Granola-Bars/Detail.aspx
This is the original recipe. I use less butter and don't use as many chocolate chips...I think 2 cups of chocolate chips is insane. That's just me.
