Well, here we are, the second edition of Savory Sundays. Some good stuff for you today. First up, some granola bars. Never thought I'd make granola bars but these were getting lots of good reviews on All Recipes, so I decided to try them out. I'm glad I did. Click on the link for the recipe. The ingredients:
I had to buy wheat germ for this but since it's healthy I knew it was worth it. Aside from that, I had most of the ingredients handy. So first thing, you have to mix the dry ingredients, toss in the wet ingredients like so:
And then - the fun part - you mix with your hands:
You get your fingers pretty sticky but that's the only way to mix. It starts to come together pretty well.
It forms a solid clump that when you drop it into the baking dish, but that can be easily resolved.
This is after pushing it down with a spatula for a minute or so.
You can bake it for anywhere from 25 minutes or and up. I like to keep it in for exactly 30 minutes. When the edges brown, it's done.
I like to cut it in pieces when it's still warm. In fact, that's the only time you can cut it.
Just a little warning, though. These are highly addictive.
