Granola Bar Trouble
Thanks for all the info and recipes.
I’m wanting to make ‘granola bars’ not the cereal. I love the nuts/cereal/fruit bars I can get in the health food stores and want to make some for myself. Mine keep falling apart or they collect moisture and get soggy. Can you help?
Hi Dave and Pat,
To make granola bars you can use any granola recipe. You can also add extra nuts or dried fruits.
Measure out 5 to 5 1/2 cups of granola mixture and place in a large bowl.
For a binder: In a sauce pan measure 1/2 cup of Canola oil, 2/3 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup of honey. Bring to a boil stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Drizzle slowly over the granola mixture while folding cereal with a lightly buttered wooden spoon. Spread out on lightly sprayed 9 x 13 inch pan. Allow to cool before cutting into bars. Store in a air tight container.
Hint: If you want your bars softer use more binder, less if you like them drier. I think you could use rice bran from the health food store instead of honey.
