View Full Version : breakfast or granola bars

I was sitting around thinking about pemmican and the fact that I don't have all the materials needed to make it. So I decided to make a breakfast bar instead (the closest I could get).

I used about 1/4 Cup peanut butter, mixed in 1 T honey, and threw it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. I then added walnut bits, raisins, and Grape Nuts, until I had a moist mix.
I sprayed a ramican with olive oil and jammed the mix in with a spoon until it was about 1 inch deep. I topped it with some wax paper and filled it again, using all my mix. Put it in the refrigerator to cool and solidify.

This is a simple recipe that I made up when I saw what I had for materials and I think it worked out pretty well.

Anybody got some tried and true recipes?

Check out Moose Goo. Kinda like what you did, but gooey so you can use it on tortillas and such.
