In my forums I'm looking for a granola bar that works, good amount of calories, and very nutritious for you. This granola bar may not hit all the spots but this is a step closer to where I want to be. Still working it all out but yeah if you're a decent cook and know how you could make this recipe better then tell me and I would be happy for the critique. Enjoy!

Recipe Ingredients for Test out granola bars

1 cup granola
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup corn flakes
1/3 package (3.6 oz/ or 1/3 cup) dried fruit
1/3 cup chopped nuts
1 1/2 servings (3 tbs) marshmallow fluff
1 tsp butter, salted
1/4 cup lite maple syrup
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Silk Soymilk Very Vanilla

Recipe Directions for Test out granola bars

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a huge bowl.

  2. In a small sauce pan on medium heat pour the vanilla soy milk first and let that heat for like a minute. Add the marshmallow fluff, maple syrup, honey and 1 tsp butter. The reason I put the butter was because when the marshmallow fluff melts it doesn't melt completely so I thought that I needed butter but maybe I was wrong on that part since that didn't make a difference. I could have put some apple sauce instead or something.

  3. Anyway, with a flat wooden spoon (much easier to stir with instead of a metal spoon/ fork) constantly stir the liquid until it thickens nicely. Once the mixture starts to bubble lower the heat and continue stirring for around 3-5 more minutes.

  4. With your dry mixture right next to you quickly pour the liquid and stir gently. Do not over stir, mix until lightly coated. If you think the mixture needs a little bit more liquid squeeze some maple syrup and honey onto the mixture.

  5. In a greased 8" by 8" pan (or anything bigger) turn over the mixture onto the pan. If you have wax paper you could use that too instead of oil/ butter. Take wax paper and cover the pan. Press down firmly so the mixture all sticks together. Leaving the wax paper let the mixture freeze for at least 4 hours until cutting into bars.

  6. Keep well for about a week. If you want remake the Nature Valley Sweet and Salty bar you could possibly use a little bit of milk, white chocolate, and some almond butter and dip the bars and let them dry on a sheet.
