I've had a hankering for a proper granola bar recently and decided to try my hand at making them. Using some of the ingredients I had around I was able to whip these up very quickly.
This recipe is incredibly simple to make. Many of the steps are negotiable (like toasting the oats) which will reduce the prep time, but there is a cooling period at the end which takes approximately an hour (unless you get hungry like my coworker and dig in earlier).
This recipe is based loosely off of the Barefoot Contessa
and Simple Organized Living
. If you want "healthier" versions than you can add fruit or other nuts and less or no chocolate (although that would be blasphemous).
