Cake Batter Granola Bars

Cake Batter Granola Bars

I have two problems. Okay, more than two. But at the moment we are only discussing the two at hand.

Problem #: I need a time machine.

Not the kind of time machine where you travel between years and go visit people who died seven decades ago in order to “find yourself”. I think Hollywood has done that plot about sixteen times.  I’m talking about a machine that actually makes time. Preferably coin-operated. Put in a quarter, out comes an hour.

I’m always in a hurry, always late (probably not fashionably either), and always trying to cram way too much into a day.

Problem #2: I have a growing cake batter obsession.

It’s only been within, oh maybe the past year, that I’ve had my eyes opened to the magic of cake batter. I had no idea that cake batter was for anything other than an actual cake. With the frosting and the crumbs and maybe the candle, depending on the occasion. Let’s take a squick inventory of the cake batter uses I was unaware of…

Cake batter rice krispy treats.

Cake batter ice cream.

Cake batter pancakes.

Cake batter muddy buddies.

I’m running up a large yellow cake batter box mix bill. You’re welcome Betty.

I’ve decided these granola bars are proof of that thing I put on my job resumes. You know, “creative problem solver” or something like that. Two problems: no time, and cake batter obsession. Solution: on-the-go Cake Batter Granola Bars.

Dang I’m good. Hire me.

    Hi Tiffany! Stopping by from Show Stopper Saturday, and had to check out your granola bars. These would make such a great after school snack or something fun to wrap up and put in his lunch box. Such a great idea!! Pinning!

    I have found that toasting the oats in the oven first for about 15-20 min, stirring a couple times (mix with a couple tablespoons of vegetable oil first), makes a LOT of difference in taste when making granola bars. Other than making that change, I’m definitely going to try these!

      Thanks so much Jen! I haven’t tried the toasting, it might be great but I love these without toasting! Ha! :)
