Baking for people who can't bake:Granola bars

Hello so as you can tell from the title of this post I will be attempting to do some baking, stress the word attempting. I have always loved the idea of being a good cook, but lets just say after various fails I just gave up on the idea. Having said that these Granola Bars are so easy to make I bet my dog could make them!

The ingredients you will need are:
225g of porridge oats
75g of black treacle
75g of soft brown sugar
2 table spoons of peanut butter

150g of butter
and a handful of what ever fruits or nuts you want to add, as I have an intense hatred of dead fruit I added brazil nuts and macadamia nuts.

  1. First pre heat the oven to 180C Gas mark 5.
  2. Then grease a baking tray with butter, just so they don't stick too much.
  3. Melt the butter, sugar, treacle in a pan making sure you don't let the mixture boil or the sugar burn, I recommend a low heat for this!
  4. Then stir in the oats and the fruit or nuts of  your choice.
  5. The add the peanut butter.
  6. Stir until it is all combined.
  7. Press into a baking tray until it is at the desired thickness, I didn't cover my whole tray as I wanted them to be quite thick.
  8. Then bake for 25 min.
  9. Wait for them to cool and then cut them up into bars or squares or whatever shape your heart desires.
  10. Enjoy!
Another great thing about this recipe is there is minimal washing up! See I really have thought about it.

See that wasn't so difficult, I hope you enjoy them!
Lots of love
