Granola Bar Poppers

Granola Bar Poppers: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

I have been making homemade granola bars for a few years now and have tried many different recipes. All of the recipes are similar in that you spread the mixture into a pan, press down firmly, let cool then cut into bars. The reason this recipe caught my attention is that instead of a pan it used an ice cube tray. I thought it was such a cool idea to press the mixture into an ice cube tray, instead of having to worry about cutting the bars after they cooled. Once the mixture cooled, I was able to just pop out the granola bars I needed. Plus I was able to store them in the ice cube tray with some foil over top until I needed some.

Granola Bar Poppers
Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cups chocolate chips

Directions:
In a large bowl combine the oats and almonds. Set aside.

In a medium pot over medium heat, add in the butter, honey, brown sugar and vanilla. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar is dissolved, butter is melted and mixture is throughly combined. Pour mixture over the oats and almonds. Stir everything together until completely mixed. Add in the cranberries and chocolate chips, mixing again to combine everything.

Lightly spray two plastic ice cube trays with cooking spray. Divided the granola mixture evenly between the ice cube trays and firmly press the mixture down. Allow the granola bar poppers to cool completely before popping them out.

Enjoy!!!
