TWD: chocolate oatmeal almost-candy bars
My oatmeal bars weren’t strictly to the recipe because in the midst of making the things, I realized:
1. I did not have peanuts.
2. I did not have raisins.
3. I did not have any baking pans of sufficient size.
It’s okay, though, because scruffling around my studio-sized pantry, I found the following things:
1. Chopped hazelnuts. (yum!)
2. Dried cranberries. (I simply wasn’t feeling these in the moment of baking. So I did not put them in.)
3. Two small pans. (maybe 6×9(?) and a bread pan. This was still too small, so I had fat bars.)
Why I didn’t just half the recipe or something smart like that, I don’t know. I’m an engineer. I am supposed to love math. But sometimes it’s nice to just scoop the flour and throw it in.
All that said, these were wonderful! I think so, people at work said so. So thank you, Lillian, from Confectiona’s Realm for the choice this week. If anyone else wants to make these bad boys, you can just refer to her post with the recipe in it! Or you can just buy the book…it’s good.
