So I made some homemade granola bars last night. I followed THIS recipe and based upon the ingredients this recipe looked pretty tasty. The batter turned out to be just that. So I stick in the oven and headed over to TheDailyPlate.com to build the recipe and see how much caloric info is in this granola.
Pre cut loaf
So cut it up into 10 bars, making them ~400 calories each
In other words, these are potent little suckers. For their size, they are on par with the store brand, just these are 2X more potent.
I made these because I am looking for alternate forms of fueling before a midday workout, which is usually a lunch time swim or bike ride. I guess it is one of these and some water and I am ready to rock! These remind me of these 7 layer bars we would eat in high school. I don't know what was in them, but after one bite you didn't have to eat for a month! haha!
Have you ever made granola bars? Have you found a recipe that is tasty, doesn't break the calorie bank, and is easy to make?
