S’mores granola bars – SRC

7 Apr

The beginning of the month always brings a secret recipe club recipe! This month I was given Mellissa from a fit & spicy life. Mellissa has great recipes, fitness tips, restaurant reviews, and some wine tidbits on her site. After perusing her site I settled on these s’mores granola bars. They were super easy to make and put together. They looked delicious out of the oven. But something went wrong, the ingredients didn’t bind together. Nevertheless husband and I dug in with spoons and ate it like cereal. Delicious!

S’mores granola bars
adapted from afitandspicylife

Ingredients
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
6 tablespoons maple syrup
2 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups marshmallows

Instructions
In a medium-sized saucepan set over medium heat, melt and stir together the butter, sugar, and syrup, cooking until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in oats, flour, salt, and graham cracker crumbs.
Press slightly more than half of the mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 9 inch pan. Let cool completely. Preheat the oven to 350F. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top, then the marshmallows. Top with remaining crust mixture. Bake the bars for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them rest for 20 minutes, then cut into squares or bars while still slightly warm.

    Now thats one cereal that can pass for dessert as well. Looks yummy. I would’ve gone the spoon way too. It would’ve been a shame to let that deliciousness go to waste 🙂

    These were pretty gooey, but still delicious! Glad you were still able to enjoy.

    How great is it when you dig that spoon in. Seems to make everything taste better when you eat it like that!
