What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Chewy Granola Bars
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 476 calories, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

    I liked these granola bars. They were chewy which is better for me than the crunchy ones. I would change one ingredient for me, personally. I was not a big fan of the pumpkin seeds. They always get caught in my teeth, which annoys me. They did give a great flavor, but I think that I might add in some nuts instead. I believe in following Ree’s recipes exactly, unless it can’t be avoided. It would not be fair to give my opinion on Ree’s recipes, unless I try my best to stay true to her recipes.

 I began by mixing the dry ingredients.
Into the bowl, I combined the Old Fashioned Oats,

 dried cranberries,

 pumpkin seeds,

 almond flour,
(Thanks Emily for this flour) 

ground cinnamon,

 and finally the salt.

I stirred them all together. 
Then, I set the dry ingredients to the side.

 On to the wet ingredients.
I began by melting the butter.

 I added in the honey and corn syrup.

 I let them all melt together.

 I let it boil for a few minutes.

 I loved pouring it into the dry ingredients.

 I poured all of it into a greased 8 x 8 pan.

 I used my greased fingers to compress it in the pan.
Be careful because it is hot.

 I cut them into soft, chewy bars. Yum!!
I shared these with the Barnett family and my bank.
