Who gives a F$#@ Granola Bars

Ok, so I know what you’re thinking: Jacquie doesn’t normally use quite such colourful language when writing her posts. Well, when I made these granola bars, I was seriously channeling some Thug Kitchen, and I had to have it come across. Also, I told Justin that is what they were called, and he made me promise to call them that on my blog. So here we are, with who gives a F%#@ Granola Bars.

DSC05100Firsts things first, go to your pantry and take a look at all of the grains or pantry items that you have a tiny bit left of. I’m talking oatmeal packs, cereal boxes, puffed wheat, graham crackers… whatever. Pull it all out and get read to assemble.

DSC05101Mix your honey and peanut putter and get ready to dump in your ingredients.

DSC05102I decided to toast my oats and sesame seeds in the oven for a little while before adding them to the mix.

DSC05103I also decided it would be a good idea to break up the graham crackers and peanuts before dumping them into the base. I used my trusty food processor.

DSC05105Add your ingredients to the mix.

DSC05106Make sure that everything gets really coated well.

DSC05107Add it to a baking dish, lined with wax paper.

DSC05108I sprinkled the bars with white yogurt and milk chocolate chips, for some extra sweetness.

DSC05110Then I diced it into bar sizes.

DSC05111For extra portability, I even wrapped the bars in wax paper. Perfect for that afternoon or morning snack.
