I made some no-bake granola bars last night by seriously tweaking this recipe from Bitten. Oh my heavens. Oh lordy, they are magnificent. I'm going to tell you what I did so you can run to your cupboard and make these pronto.
Oh, and instead of "pressing them into a 9 inch pan and cutting them" I took the short cut and used cupcake tins. Hence the balliness of them.
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 maple syrup
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 cups granola
- 1 cup mixture of pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, slivered almonds, dried cranberries, roasted salted soynuts
- 1/2 tspn cinnamon
- 1. Put the first five ingredients in a small pot and bring to a boil (don't let it go too long or it will burn). Put the granola etc. in a large bowl and pour the sugar mixture over the top while mixing; stir until the granola is well coated.
- 2. Press into cupcake tins and let cool in the fridge. Cover each one with plastic wrap and try your hardest to fend off friends, relatives and coworkers.
