Granola Bar Breakfast

As I said before: granola bars are a wonderful thing to have hanging around the house. Late night snacking, afternoon treat, or healthy and filling breakfast...they satisfy practically any occasion. I performed the following alterations to my previous recipe for granola bars:

2 cups oats

1/2 cup corn flakes

1/2 cup oil

1/2 cup honey

1 tsp cardamon

1 tsp cinnamon

1 cup chopped dates

1/2 cup banana chips, crushed

1/2 cup flour

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup brown sugar plus 2 or 3 tsp white sugar

1 egg

Mix all the "dries" together - minus the mix-ins. Then add the wet stuffs. The consistency should still be malleable but not too watery, so continue adding either oatmeal or corn flakes (bran flakes might be a nice addition instead) until you reach the right consistency.

Dates are one of my all-time favorite snacks/throw-in for...anything

The dough for these bars is pretty delish by itself

So pretty - I love banana chips

Bake the mixture - after pouring into a well-buttered Pyrex at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Take them out and before they cool completely, cut into squares. Take out of the dish and let them cool completely before wrapping and they'll keep for two weeks.
