Magazine Monday #31: Toasted Oat Granola Bars

A while back, I posted about the granola bars from Whitewater Cooks. These bars are totally awesome! When I got my latest issue of Canadian Living, there was a homemade granola bar recipe in there, too, and it looked very good. So, I decided to make them the other day.

The recipe for Toasted Oat Granola Bars is here.

Well, you'll definitely work off some of the calories in these bars just by chewing - because they're very chewy. They turned out OK, but they're definitely not as good as the Whitewater Recipe. I might make these again if I varied the ingredients somewhat. As it was, I didn't have any dates so I just added more cranberries, and I didn't have any sunflower seeds, so I added some sliced almonds instead. I think the whole oats made these bars way more chewier than they needed to be, so maybe quick oats might be a bit better. I don't know.

Anyway, not a failure per se, just not my favourite recipe for granola bars. If you make these, let me know what your experience of the recipe is!

It's never a failure when you learn something in the kitchen - PLUS, you are able to try a new recipe. And that's always fun.

Tonight, I am making your Paprika Roast Chicken and Sweet Onion recipe from your Magazine Monday #29 post. I'll let you know how it turns out. And I'll take photos!
