More like a delicious chewy candy bar. I love these granola sticks!
Granola Garbage Sticks Recipe (8 bars)
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
2 cups granola, large clusters broken up
1/2 cup dry roasted sunflower kernels
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup honey roasted almonds, coarsely chopped
1/4/ cup peanut butter flavor baking pieces
1/2 cup dark chocolate baking pieces, melted
Line a 8×8-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over the edges of the pan. Grease foil; set aside.
In a small saucepan combine brown sugar, honey, butter, and peanut butter. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat, simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl stir together granola, sunflower kernels, peanut, almonds and peanut butter pieces. Add brown sugar mixture to granola mixture; toss to combine. Immediately press granola mixture evenly into the prepared pan. Chill about 15 minutes or until firm.
Use foil to lift uncut bars out of pan. Place on a cutting board; cut into 8×1-inch bars. Transfer bars to a sheet of waxed paper. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand about 15 minutes or until chocolate is set. This recipe is from BHG Food Gifts 2012 magazine.
