Playgroup Granola Bars - Review by Whitney
I agree with other reviews that this is a good start or base granola bar recipe. I liked it, but I thought the honey taste overpowered everything else. Sooo the next time I used light corn syrup instead of honey and it was great. I have tried this recipe substituting different dried fruits including dried cranberries, coconut, apples, or raisins, and I have even put a mixture of nuts including unsalted sesame seeds, slivered almonds, or walnuts. Also, I have added mini chocolate chips or drizzled white almond bark over the top when they come out of the oven. I also agree that the cook time is a little long, they do not need to be brown around the edges, that usually means the edge pieces are going to be crunchy while the middle pieces are more chewy; probably around 25-30 minutes is good. Oh and lastly, I don't always put cinnamon in them when it doesn't go with the other ingredients, and I always lessen the salt to 1/2 tsp! Hope everyone enjoys all of the variations you can make with this recipes!!!
Make your own animal crackers! Cut these tasty not-too-sweet cookies into animal shapes. Made with buttermilk, oats and honey.
The first time I made this I had a small tub of raw nuts in my cabinet and didn't know what to do with them. My mom gave me the recipe, and after I made it I couldn't stop eating them. I am not a nut person, but I am totally addicted to these coated nuts. They're perfect for parties and festive occasions!
Kids will love to roll these peanut butter balls into the different coatings.
A no-cook peanut butter confection, using just 4 ingredients, that kids can play with and eat!
This cookie is easy to make and requires no baking. Peanuts, crisp rice cereal and marshmallows blend well for a satisfying treat.
