In full transparency, I did not intend on making a granola recipe when this one came to light. It was a happy accident. Or, moreover a tasty accident.
The original plan was to make KIND bars at home. Cause why not? And also I’m unashamedly obsessed with making my own granola bars and snacks, and everything in between. Well, the original plot of this recipe went awry. I used far too few wet ingredients, and made the mistake of not using honey, which would have held everything together.
So, as you could expect, these bars did not hold together and instead I was left with essentially an unbaked granola. AH! The idea. Why not bake it and see if anything good comes out of it? Alas, something fantastic came out of it. Andddd, this recipe will be on my monthly granola rotation for the foreseeable future. All thanks to a failed (but eventually successful) recipe.
