Failing the bar

Bella has been loving granola bars lately!  I thought it would be a good change to make some.  I came across this recipe for peanut butter granola and figured I’d give it a whirl…and even better, I had all of the ingredients on hand.  

I made a few changes – added slivered almonds and coconut, replaced the corn syrup with honey, and used creamy peanut butter instead of crunchy.  It came together very nicely and looked great…until…  

I went to cut it into bars (and yes, they were completely cooled off).  Big fat fail.  I’m not sure why.  It just kept crumbling, and crumbling…but, the good news is that it tastes perfectly fine.  Especially on top of greek yogurt.

Next time I think I’ll add some mini chocolate chips 🙂

  1. Crumbly granola bars = great granola to put over top of yogurt. All works out in the end!

    How sad! I’m glad it still tasted good.

    I bet something about the corn syrup works more as an adhesive than honey does.

  4. Tony, I thought the same thing…although other people (as per the reviews) had success with it.

    Looks great with the yogurt! Peanut butter granola sounds good as a crumble or a bar to me.

    Well, now you have granola! Glass half full approach 😛

  8. Hey that doesn’t look like a failure to me. It looks like one amazing peanut butter and almond granola- that is perfect for snack or breakfast!
