Recipes and ramblings.
Hello internet friends. I miss you guys.
I feel like I haven’t been here in forever.
I’ve made a huge mistake. I hope you guys can forgive me. (Cue sad Charlie Brown music.)
I’ve been caught up in stupid things, like Arrested Development marathons leading up to the premiere. Four more days! C’mon!
And as usual, I’ve been baking up a storm. But in all honesty, I’ve been too distracted by Tobias and his ‘colorful’diction to write a proper post.
I hope you all will be joining me for the premiere so we can continue to practice our chicken dance and be fooled by Gene Parmesan.
Makes 10 bars.
Preheat oven to 350℉.
Combine butter, honey,and brown sugar in a small saucepot. Heat over low heat until mixture is fully combined and has become thin. Stir in vanilla. Fold together oats, flour, and salt. Pour honey mixture into oat mixture and mix until fully combined. Fold in add-ins of choice. (For this batch, I used dried cranberries and blueberries, cashews, almonds, and walnuts.) Press into a parchment-lined 8″x8″ pan. Bake 18-22 minutes until granola is set. When pulled out of the oven, it will crumble if you try to cut the bars right away. Let cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes, then lift the parchment (and granola) out of the pan. Cut into bars.
Props to you if you caught all the Arrested Development-themed jokes in this post.
