I thought that maybe we could continue our chat about lunch from last week. One of my other food goals for this year is to increase the number of things that I make instead of buy. When I stumbled across a recipe for homemade granola bars I wanted to give it a try.
The recipe I used is from Smitten Kitchen, one of my online favorites, and this particular granola bar recipe came highly recommended. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Eating these almost makes up for missing the party.
When I eat store-bought granola bars, I typically find them way too sweet. I used the lowest recommended amount of sugar (1/2 cup) but I think I may cut back on the liquid sweeteners next time too, the dried fruits are already sweet enough for me.
