Granola Bars

You absolutely have to make these Granola Bars. They are so easy, five minutes max. Seriously. Check out her recipe, I love it!

Lauren only uses seven ingredients. Just seven! Check the box of bars in your pantry, I'm pretty sure there are more than seven ingredients in those puppies.

If nothing else convinces you, check out Alton Brown's view of of all of these "bars", he has some excellent ideas! Lauren's recipe is actually really similar, the quick oats take out the toasting.

I used Quaker Whole Hearts cereal instead of Rice Krispies. Who wouldn't enjoy a little extra love in their granola bar?

The best part of this recipe is that you can create any flavor combination you want. Nuts, dried fruit, spices, use your favorites!

Be sure to really press these down into the pan. You all would have laughed at me me standing on a footstool for extra leverage.
A short girl's gotta do what she's gotta do.

Make up a batch and pack them all in snack-sized zip bags for a fast and easy breakfast or a quick grab for a lunch bag.
