Dried Fruit Granola Bars (Guidelines Edition)

Here is what I actually did to make these bars.  While I’m willing to tell you what I did, it seems unfair to link that to the original recipe which probably isn’t at all properly reflected in my final result.

Pre-heat oven to 350°.

Coat 13″ x 9″ pan with cooking spray and dust with flour.

  • 3 oz. all purpose flour
  • 1.6 oz. whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 t. cream of tartar                    Whisk to combine dry ingredients
  • 1/4 t. baking soda                           in small bowl.
  • 1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
  • dash of salt
  • 1 1/4 c. brown sugar (packed)       Combine in large bowl
  • 1/4 c. canola oil                               (Here is where I put them in a LARGE bowl,
  • 2 T. milk                                           not realizing I was going to beat until smooth).
  • 2 large eggs                                      Beat until smooth.  🙂

Add flour mixture to  large bowl and beat at low speed until combined.

  • 1 1/2 c. whole grain flakes & clusters cereal
  • 3/4 c. chopped dried fruit

Fold fruit and cereal into batter.  Spoon batter into prepared pan.

1/2 c. flaked sweetened coconut.     Sprinkle coconut on top.

Bake until golden ( about 25-30 minutes.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
