Some folks may tell you that I don’t know how to bake, BUT it would be a fib. It is not so much that I do not know how, but rather an abhorrence for following directions. Yes, it is true, I like to do things my own way which – surprise, surprise – does not lend itself to baking. At least not baking well lol.
Today I decided to use up some over ripe bananas to make my daughter an after school snack. I found a quick easy recipe for Banana Breakfast Bars which I thought would make for a good lunch box stuffer as well. I tend to bake things that I know I have the ingredients for because I don’t like stock piling things like chocolate chips and marzipan…okay no one I know really stocks marzipan but still.
Now here is where I show my ineptitude which we will from this point forward call ingenuity. As I am moving through the steps and mixing up the recipe I realize that I do not have old fashioned oats. Now mind you I KNOW I have some, but I cannot find them to save my life. So, in steps ingenuity and I decide to use Organic Blueberry Granola. Because I don’t measure I’m guessing I used about a cup and a half.
So for the taste test… It is delicious!! I’m making this the WRONG way from now on.
