My first go included a purchased cranberry-sunflower seed trail mix, quick oats, rice krispie cereal, creamy peanut butter, honey, and vanilla. The flavor was super, super good, but it crumbled when you picked up the bars; it needs more sticky stuff. So I crumbled it all onto a sprayed baking sheet and baked it at 350 for 20 minutes (I stirred it at the 10-minute mark). Once it cooled it was a beautifully crunchy granola. For breakfast this morning I had it with some of my homemade yogurt and a little honey. So tasty!
Stay tuned for more granola bar testing; my 8-year-old practically lives on a store-brand knock-off of Fiber 1 bars, and I'm going to come up with my own version of that. Thinking of the money I could save just making her bars (plus no mystery ingredients) makes me a little giddy!
