I have been on a bit of cooking/baking binge lately. By watching my nutrition more, I have really started to look at what goes into the food I eat.
One of the items I do miss is granola bars. Well - here is a home made version! Not a bar, but granola!
I took this from Mark Bittman's Food Matters. I used:
5 cups of old fashioned oats
3 cups of walnuts
1/2 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of vanilla
Baked it at 350 for about 40 minutes. After I pulled it out of oven, my wife added about a 1/2 to 3/4 cup of blueberries.
It is now stored in the fridge and is ready to eat!
