Food Storage Recipe Monday

Posted by imawheatwatcher on September 12, 2011

I thought that it would be a great use of this blog to post food storage friendly recipes every Monday. I have gotten several comments that people would LOVE more recipes. If you have a recipe that you love and would like to share, please email it to me!

Homemade Fat-Free Granola Bars
  • 2 1/4 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup bean puree (blend white beans and enough water to form a puree-the consistency should be that of a smoothie-in your blender)
  • 5 T. honey
  • 3 T. cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup rice krispies
  • 1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut, optional
  • ½ cup chopped almonds, optional
  • 1 cup craisins*
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips*
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F . Lightly grease one 9×13 inch pan. In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, flour, baking soda, vanilla, bean puree, honey and brown sugar. Stir in the coconut, rice krispies, craisins, white chocolate chips and nuts.

Lightly press mixture into the prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes then cut into bars. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing or serving.

*You can use any combination of add-ins you would like just make sure it equals 2 cups. Some ideas may be raisins, chocolate chips, etc.
