Crisp Crunch.

I’ve got a little vice.

Well, I don’t know if it’s an actual vice, more of an obsession.

With crispy foods.

Me and burnt toast…we’ve been friends for quite some time.

I made my first roast chicken the other day and let me tell you something…crispy chicken skin is ahhhhmazing.

I’m sure professional chefs would gasp open mouthed about my burnt toast confession.

Not to mention that fact that I just made my first whole roasted chicken.

Shall we even mention crispy, little fried, donut holes?

That will just segway into funnel cakes.

Uh, let’s talk healthy crispy things.

Like these crunchy granola bars.

    Like, how do you just know exactly what ingredients I have lying around at home? I’m adding this to my list of food prep tonight!

    I am an endurance runner and am always looking for good clean sources of fuel on long runs and races. This one looks just right. I’m also going to add tart cherries for a little more carb source.

    great recipe. I added some honey glazed macadamia, flaxseed and sesame seed to the above recipe. These were awesome.

  4. Claudette says:

    i love the taste! But mine turned into a trail mix since the mix stuck to the paper and could not get the bars out of it. Any suggestions for the mix not to stick on bottom? Thanks
