ZFW: Oatmeal and All-bran granola bars!

My oldest daughter managed to eat the entire tray of Use It All Up Granola Bars I made a few days ago and was on the hunt for something else to eat today. Since we are still doing our zero food waste challenge I helped her figure out something she could make from the ingredients on hand. We did some searching and decided to try and find a granola recipe that we could tweak to use the ingredients we had on hand.  We found this granola bar recipe that looked good so we decided to use it as our jumping off point.

I left the base "glue" recipe the same, and was quite happy to use up more of our crystallized honey. However we didn't have all of the dry ingredients on hand so we changed that part up a bit. I was very happy to use up the half a box of all-bran that has been sitting in my cabinet for WAY too long.

Our recipe:

Oatmeal and All-bran Granola Bars

1/2c Butter
1/2c Honey
2/3c Light Brown Sugar
3c. Oatmeal
3c. All-Bran Cereal
3/4c. Shredded Coconut

Line a 9x13in pan with aluminum foil and set aside. In a small sauce pan melt the butter, honey, and brown sugar together till smooth.  Add the dry ingredients and then turn out into your prepared pan to mix well. Make sure all the "glue" mixture gets well mixed into the dry ingredients. Once well mixed cover with another sheet of aluminum foil and pat down firmly to compress the granola into a solid sheet. Cover and store in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Once set turn out onto a cutting board and cut into bars. Store in an air tight container.

I have to say I like these granola bars better then the last batch. They are super yummy and you have to love all the extra fiber in the all-bran!
