I really like granola bars and power bars. Sometimes I can find it at a good price, but most of the time it can be rather expensive so I thought I would look for a good recipe online. I found this one, but I wanted to change a few things: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/peanut-almond-snack-bars-50400000130039/.
The recipe called for butter, chunky peanut butter, chocolate toasted oat cereal (Cheerios), hard pretzel twists, roasted, salted almonds, and kosher salt, but I used these ingredients instead:
Margarine, soy butter (found it in the peanut butter section), honey nut oat cereal (instead of chocolate), “Fiber One” bran cereal (2 cups to replace the pretzels– I used a generic brand), raw cashews (1 cup to add crunch to the soy butter) and raw almonds, and no salt.
I basically doubled the recipe, using a 13×9 Pyrex pan to set the mixture.
It didn’t take long for it to set—about 20-30 minutes.
There were things I should have done, like add salt to counter the sweetness of the soy butter and marshmallows. I also should have pressed the ingredients together more (I was able to cut it into cubes, but they were slightly loose).
Overall, a good recipe!
