Thank you, Protein Bars. I know you’re a candy bar, and you know you’re a candy bar, but I’m glad we can share in this lie together. This month’s Sourdough Surprises challenge reminded me of this Tonight Show Thank You Note—granola bars. I’m from Portland, Oregon so granola is not only a noun but a respectable adjective to me. Tasty granola bars are indeed a challenge. I made three batches that went to Izzy and the chickens before I finally, thank God, made these.
Zucchini Cinnamon Chip Granola Bars
50g shredded zucchini
125g rolled oats
150g cinnamon chips
6 g salt
2 TB bran
4 TB flax seeds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir all ingredients carefully together and spread the mush over a baking sheet on baking paper about 1 cm thick.
It works well to form a rough rectangle that is compacted and flat on top with a wooden spoon. Bake for 30 minutes. Let it cool down and cut it into triangle strips.
Simple, and sweet!
