Whew. What a week!

Last night at 10:30 I got a craving for one of my delicious homemade granola bars. I had to make them. Technically, my sister gave me the recipe, but that won't stop me from claiming them as mine.

Make them. Love them. Devour them.

I say that they're healthy. Ignore the sugar when you're pouring it in. Claim it as health food.

So, because it's Friday. Because Tim Tebow got drafted to the Denver Broncos today. And because these are Incredible. Here are:

Sarah's Yummy Homemade Granola Bars!

The Cast of Characters:
3/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar ( I used more like 1/4ish and it turned out fine)
8 oz yogurt
2 egg whites
2 T vegetable oil
2 T milk
2 t vanilla
1/2 c flour (I did half whole wheat, half all-purpose)
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamin
1/2 t salt
3 c oats
1 c dried fruit (Craisins were in the pantry)

Step One: Mix sugars, yogurt, egg whites, oil, milk & vanilla. Mix well.

Step Two: In another bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to yogurt mix.
{Sometimes I forget to keep taking pictures along the way...}

Step Three: Stir in oats and fruit.

Step Four: Spread doug on bottom of ungreased 13x9 pan

{note: you can use a 13x9, but I feel like they come out too cake-y that way so I just spread them out on a baking sheet and I like the thickness more}

Step Five: Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes. 30 is the magic number with my oven.

Portion for me!
