Happy New Year! Welcome 2012...the year the world is supposed to end, or some such nonsense!
Beast and I have not stopped cooking and baking-we've just been so busy we haven't had time to write in the blog. I'm working full-time now at Sub-Zero and Wolf and it has been an adjustment for us in time management.
One day at work I came across a recipe in Fitness Magazine for some granola bars that sounded really good. I hate the store-bought processed ones with all the preservatives and stabilizers so I'm always looking for a recipe for granola bars that will stave off my mid-day hunger and will hold together while eating...challenging.
Yesterday I made these with a slight modification to the recipe and they are a great consistency and quite tasty. I can't wait to try them with peanut butter instead of fruit and nuts.
I used dried Door County cherries and pecans and adjusted the amounts to about 6 oz cherries and 1/2 cup pecans and increased the chocolate chips to about 1/2 cup.
They make a great healthy snack or breakfast!
