Granola bars! Yum!
Tuesday, September 22, 2009 | Time: 1:16 PM

This is an excellent recipe for granola bars. Unless of course you're the type who likes those hard crunchy types of granola bars... I know you'll love these. Even if you don't like granola bars, everybody loves these! They DO!
Yay, granola bars! Mmm! So good.
And it only takes a few minutes of 'actual work' to make these. They have to sit for a few hours to harden up, but that is hands-free.
I'm using the picture from the site Joyful Abode, where I got the recipe. My camera isn't working :( Her picture is nice and these are what mine would have looked like anyway, right?

This recipe is for using what I had on hand but you can view the original recipe here.

Granola Bars
adapted from Joyful Abode

2 cups oats
1 cup almonds, crushed (with something heavy)
1 c raisins
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
3 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp peanut butter (crunchy or smooth)
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

1. Heat your oven to 400 F. On a baking sheet spread the oats and nuts and raisins and toast them for 4-5 minutes until... well, toasted.
2. In a pot on the stove, combine the rest of the ingredients and heat through 2-3 minutes, bringing the mixture to a simmer.
3. Combine the oat mixture and the syrup, make sure it all gets coated together.
4. Pour everything into a square pan lined with wax paper (or greased parchment, or foil or something). Pat down and cover. Let cool 2-3 hours, then slice.
