TWD: Granola Energy Bars

The first selection out of Baking Chez Moi for 2015 was the Granola Energy Bars (probably to give us all energy for working off the tasty treats of December) 🙂 These bars turned out to be very delicious! I enjoy granola with plain yogurt for breakfast and make this King Arthur recipe. I’m glad this was a selected recipe- otherwise I might have skipped right over it in favor of another sweet!

I made my granola with a mixture of dried cranberries, apricot slivers and unsweetened coconut. I also added a few handfuls of semisweet chips to the mixture before it went into the pan.

I also didn’t have an 11″ x 7″ Pyrex pan (only 13″ x 9″) so I added some silver foil into the pan to scale it down to the proper size! I was really pleased with how well these bars turned out. They were the perfect fuel ahead of a long run and my husband was really happy to have them for breakfast in the morning. I will definitely make these again- I just wish they had a longer shelf life than 1 week! Check out the round up from the Tuesday’s With Dorie group and bake along with us!

  1. I have never once thought of putting foil in a pan like that to get it to the correct size, duh, that makes a lot of sense. You can bet I will use that tip at some point in the future. Your bars look beautiful, and especially so on that beautiful plate you placed them on. Looks like a special treat like that…and well deservedly so!
