New Recipe: Granola Bars

On Monday, Deb over at Smitten Kitchen posted a granola bar recipe, so what do I do? Immediately go to the kitchen and try it.

The recipe calls for quick oats - I do not have quick oats. I have the more coarse old-fashioned oats. She suggests using a food processor to pulse the oats to make them smaller, but I don't have one. I tried my tiny single-serving blender, which didn't really cut it. So, my granola bars ended up much chunkier than Deb's.

I added dried cranberries, mini-chocolate chips, and walnuts AND they are delicious! I think they're a bit dry, probably because I also didn't have corn syrup on hand. With all of the above in mind, I highly recommend the recipe. The man approves too. ;-)
