Last week, Anne from fANNEtastic food posted a recipe for Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Granola Bars. I saw them and immediately knew that Joe and I should get busy whipping up a batch.
As we gathered the ingredients, Joe had to give them each a taste to make sure they were ok. He decided that he didn’t like the walnuts and wanted to use pumpkin seeds instead.
The egg was a little tough to crack because it was so fresh,
but Joe had no problem stirring the wet ingredients together.
When I told Joe that we would be making granola bars, he said, “Do we make them out of granola? We have granola from the Love Bus!”
He had fun measuring out all of the dry ingredients.
Especially the dark chocolate chips.
Leila woke up from her nap just in time to watch us finish up. The poor girl was sick last week, you can probably tell by her red cheek.
Our granola bars came out beautifully!
We ate them up pretty quickly and are already planning the next batch. This will be a fun recipe to play around with. I’m thinking that coconut would be an outstanding addition. What would you change about them?
