PMOW: granola bars
This is going to be short and sweet because man, I am cutting it close on this one!
Natalie over at Oven Love chose this month’s Pre-Made Our Way challenge–granola bars. I followed Alton Brown’s recipe, using dried mango, cranberries, pineapple, and a tiny bit of crystalized ginger for the ‘dried fruit’ portion. I did not make these in a 9×9 pan. In fact, I do not know what size of pan exactly I used, but it seemed okay because it was a little bit longer and a little bit thinner than 9″. In the end, though I determined that it was still too small and my bars came out quite thick and hefty! I might cut back slightly next time I make it.
I made these Sunday night after coming back from a weekend away at a wedding. Well, more accurately, I came back from a weekend away sitting in traffic in Jersey because a truck of some sort rolled off the highway and caught on fire (or at least that’s the conclusion I came too using my context clues) causing me to miss the actual ceremony. Luckily, the reception was much later and lovely. Also, I was just the date, so none of my friends are mad at me :)… Um, where was I going with this?
Oh right! The granola bars were a wonderful way to start the work week coming back from a crazy weekend away! I will be making them again.
Thanks, Natalie–great choice yet again!
