Biscoff granola bars


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.
