Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
Love this recipe. I am now making about 2 batches every week because my family loves it enough and takes it to school for snacks or for after workouts etc. I've played around with it quite a bit - it is very open to doing that without ruining it for many of the ingredients except for the oil. I've found that applesauce and bananas with or without the oil didn't give it the right texture. The texture that was best for subbing the oil was either half oil and half pureed beans or all pureed beans. It works very well with subbing wheat flour for all purpose flour. I have also subbed 1/4 c flax seed meal for 1/4 c of flour (and still using 3/4 flour). I also sub wheat or oat bran for the wheat germ. I've also subbed almond extract for vanilla. I've put all kinds of fillers in it - craisins, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, butterscotch. Cut up dried apricots, dried apples and even some crunched banana chips. I suggest making the recipe as is at first and then have fun subbing. There is very little that I have found that goes wrong.

Rachel's Cranberry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
This was very easy and tasted good. I did feel it lacked a little flavor so next time I would probably increase the dill and the salt. Maybe add a little mashed avocado? Not sure. I would probably rate it at 4.5 stars if I could.
