This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are making Granola Energy Bars (page 328) from Baking Chez Moi. This is a healthy start to the new year.
Has this ever happened to you? You find little pieces missing from your baked goods.
I enjoyed this recipe mostly because I had all the ingredients. Filled with natural goodness these bars contain oats, dried fruit, coconut, nuts and seeds. I used raisins, cranberries, apricots, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, all were great. The binding ingredient was supposed to be brown rice syrup but a substitution of corn syrup was given so I used that instead. I used my 9- inch square Pyrex pan and cut them into 12 strips, 20 seemed to small for a granola bar. I liked these and would make them again.
