|the 2 pans of delish looking & smelling future bars|
anyhow, we made them again today using this same recipe from allrecipes.
i remember the bars not sticking together well before, so i knew i needed to change it a bit to make it work.
i added a bit more liquid (honey and a bit of water), and made the butter just about melted instead of just soft. it's prob my fault the last ones were more granola than granola bars, b/c i'm not an avid measurer and i can't seem to stick to the "2 cups of _____" part.

i could smell they were almost done so i took a peek -beautiful!
it felt a little pricey to buy the ingredient collection we chose, but when you consider we got 2 pans of bars it feels much better! i cut ours into 24 bars, but feel they are too big and have been halving them for the boys. next time i will cut into 32 bars minimum. i like to cut them up and individually wrap them to keep them fresh.
|our individual bars|
not counting the "on hand" ingredients - things i always have like flour, honey, brown sugar, baking soda & vanilla - b/c to decide what part i used would just give a headache...this last picture is what i would have spent on the extras. i used only half of each ingredient, bringing the total to $6.62. if i were to make 32 bars (about 5 boxes of 6 bars each), it would cost $1.32 per box. wow! i'm shocked by that!!
