It's a cold, snowy day here in NJ. I decided to bake. Now, just to be honest with you all, I am not the baker! I am much better at cooking, but I felt like following a simple granola bar recipe. I got the recipe from Kath's blog. I have made them in the past but I think they came out much better this time around.
I mixed it up a bit. Here is what I used:
1 and 1/2 cup quick oats
3/4 cup dried cranberries
4 mini boxes of raisins
1/3 cup of nut/seed mix
cinnamon (a few shakes)
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
1 and 1/4 cup 1% milk
dash of salt
I first mixed all dry ingredients together then added the milk, egg and vanilla. I then poured it all into a pan, which I sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. I baked for 40mins in an oven set to 350 degrees.
The tricky part is getting them out of the pan without making them messy. I did not have parchment paper. Sorry no picture of them cut into squares...maybe tomorrow when I eat one.
They came out pretty good. The bottoms didn't brown, making them a little mushy but they are good!
