Day 282 - Ghoulish Granola: Make Them Howl With Delight.

Day 282 - Ghoulish Granola: Make Them Howl With Delight.

Oh hi spooky. How about something gross and ghoulish to kick off Friday? Today we are mixing like a mad scientist in the kitchen and bubbling up something delicious. Who thinks eyeballs are spooky? Yes, me too. Who thinks granola is delicious? Oh, yes me too! Well, let's get started on today's project and whip up some granola that will make just about anyone howl with delight.

First, here is a public service announcement. Never put waxed paper in the oven. Never. 

Now with that said, let's talk granola. This recipe is a bit on the crumbly side for a granola bar. Perhaps it could have used a bit more sun butter or honey to stick the parts together. However, if your bars become brittle like mine, consider using the rambling parts as a way to brighten any morning with a bowl of ghoulish goodness.

Now for the recipe.

Ghoulish Granola Bars

  • 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup rice cereal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped high protein pretzels
  • 3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup sun butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1 package of candy eyeballs {affiliate link}

Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare an 8" x 8" baking pan by lining it with parchment paper.

Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, cereal, salt and pretzels. Add the chocolate chips honey, sun butter, apricots to the bowl and mix well.

Step 3: Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan. Add the candy eyeballs to the top of the mixture and press into place.

Step 4: Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the edges being to turn golden brown. Let cool and slice. If the bars, don't hold their shape, consider using the crumbles as a delicious and spooky morning breakfast.

Alright goblins, enjoy the eyeballs and see you tomorrow!
