A sunday morning, I was ready to watch the various new episodes from HIMYM, TBBT and Modern Family. I readied a mug of coffee in one hand, my laptop and phone in the other and held a slice of white bread in my mouth. (Greedy, i know)
Suddenly, the bread disappeared. Still hungry, I went back to the fridge but no snacks was at sight. I shut the fridge door, lowered my expectations and pry into the fridge a second time. (This usually works.) I watched the various 'potential' snacks at hand and ideas flew into my mind chanting "bake! bake! bake!"
It is only time before they pronounce my sanity doubtful, really. I started lining out the ingredients and the rest is history.
Granola Bars. It is amazing how such simplicity and promptness turn out to be such a delicious snack.
For extra fun, I lined up marshmallows and poured some cornflakes over as toppings.
Chewy Granola Bars
(Adapted from AllRecipes)
I replaced honey in the original recipe with condensed milk. Condensed milk is the definition of my childhood. Whilst most of you dipped your fingers into peanut butter, I dipped mine in condensed milk. Secretly of course.
This granola bar is chocolatey, with a nutty oat and a cake texture to it. The golden raisin brings out a little bit of citrus and the combination of Cornflakes with marshmallows can never go wrong. All of this enveloped in a good amount of condensed milk, a taste that can hardly be explained.
For those who'd prefer less chocolatey taste (although i wouldn't comprehend anyone who would prefer that), opt out the cocoa powder and you may consider milk powder or a pinch of cinnamon.
