Chewy Granola Bars

We’re still working on Miss Emily’s, um, bowel issues. I cracked out this recipe due to the ground flaxseed.

The kids LOVE them.

Bars

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. honey or molasses
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 c. flour (You could use all whole wheat – I do)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cup rice krispies
1 cip ground flax seed or coconut (of course I use flax seed, stay near
a washroom)
1/2 or 1 c. chocolate chips (or raisins, cranraisins etc.) I did 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup rolled oats

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Beat B.sugar, sugar and butter
3. Blend in molasses, vanilla and egg
4. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt
5. Add to other mixture
6. Stir in remaining ingredients
7. Press firmly in a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake for 20 -25 minutes
8. Cool and cut into rectangles

They sure don’t taste as healthy as they are!

Snack Mix

This is a HUGE favourite around here. I posted this almost two years ago, but thought it was time to update it with a photo.

Snack Mix

INGREDIENTS:

Oil mixture:
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt

Dry mixture:
2 cups Shreddies (Or Life, which is what I used today)
2 cups Cheerios
2 cups pretzels
1 cup Goldfish
1 cup peanuts

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 250.

In a small bowl, wisk together the oil mixture. In a large roasting pan, mix together the dry goods. Drizzle with oil mixture & mix well.

Bake for 1 hour, turning contents every 15 minutes to prevent heavy browning.

I did not have any peanuts on hand so I doubled the Goldfish.

Just TRY to stop at one handful!
