    They sound great!!! When I have time, I'll definitely be making some.

    In the meantime... (and for the non-cooks out there) these granola bars are ok for me & my IC:
    Cascadian Farms Vanilla Chip Granola Bars
    Cascadian Farms Kid-sized Oatmeal Raisin Granola Bars
    Kind - Coconut Almond Bars

    So I made them tonight, with blueberries, butterscotch chips, and sliced almonds. They're SO good.

    If you could substitute dried blueberries for the fruit and either carob chips or white chocolate ones, it sounds like they might be okay.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Granola bars

    I was on the phone with my mother earlier today, and she's making a fruit tart based on a recipe from "Three Many Cooks." I've been exploring their blog as a result, and I found a recipe for granola bars:

    2 cups rolled oats
    1/2 cup wheat germ
    1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

    1 cup sliced almonds
    1/2 cup of semi- or bitter-sweet chips or chunks (about 3 ounces)
    1/2 cup dried cranberries or cherries

    Obviously cranberries & chocolate are out! But there's a video that accompanies the blog entry, and one of the cooks explains that the "add-ins" can be whatever you'd like, as long as they add up to 2 cups.

    They also note that if you want to make a gluten-free variation of these bars, you can substitute 1/2 cup of finely ground rolled oats for the wheat germ.

    To prepare these bars, they recommend you put foil in a 9-inch baking pan and grease with a spray, and then firmly pack your granola-y mixture into the pan.

    They recommend cooking for 30 minutes at 325 degrees F, and then putting in the freezer for a few minutes. Then cut into 16 pieces (or 24 if you want smaller bars).

    I haven't made these, but they seem easy enough to do that I might try them!
