Biscoff granola bars

baking, granola


Granola bars are an essential stand by. Once you have the base ingredients just add the nuts, and dried I friends which you love. I love to add puffed rice, or other puffed cereal because it varies the texture. If you prefer nuts to dried fruit then add more nuts. These bars are based on a peanut butter version in NY bakery Ovenly. Do have a look at the Ovenly cookbook for some delicious bakes.

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla http://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

    • Thank you! My rule of thumb when it comes to Biscoff and recipes is., if it asks for peanut butter substitute Biscoff , like you I’m a huge fan of the stuff 🙂
