Chewy Granola Bars
So this sounded like an awesome start for making something usable out of all those cereal boxes that were sitting in my cupboard. I took all the kashi, granola, cornflakes, steel-cut oatmeal, etc that had been opened but not eaten in the last 3 months and dumped it into a VERY big stainless steel bowl. 20 cups worth! So I somewhat randomly quadrupled/pentupled(?) the recipe for the liquids. I added in molasses, corn syrup (trying to empty my cupboards!), lots of brown sugar, NO flour - I figured there would be plenty from the cereal, some egg whites that I needed to use up (and would help bind the recipe). Blended it all up, then split it up into 3 batches. Added peanut butter to one batch (YUM!), chocolate chips to the next (YUMM!) and craisins to the other! Its all cooking right now, but it smells delicious. I expect some falling apart, but hey it's homemade. Going to let it cool, cut into bars and serve it up!
Came out wonderful!
