Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Nope, this is not going to be some altered recipe to make these bars less sugary. Sorry. The Halls like the real deal. You won't find one piece of dried fruit in this recipe. Not even peanut butter for the protein kick.

Is there anything more mouth-watering than this?
 Oh well, maybe this:
Dump this after things have melted and dissolved:
Get a cute helper:
After a few more steps, eventually this will appear:
 And a sneaky hand will make it disappear:
But you'll get a smile in return!

Thank you Once Upon a Chef for the idea!

* I did not use flax meal or wheat germ. And instead of just sliced almonds, I used honey roasted sliced almonds. Because there can never be enough sweetness. ; )


  1. Yum! You bake like me! I used to substitute apple sauce for oil ( I think it was oil maybe it was for butter? Eggs?). Who knows but a little bit of the real deal is WAY better!

  2. I hope you saved me some? =) They look super yummy.
