Favorite Ingredients Friday (Chewy Granola Bars)

Good Friday to you all! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange!

Upcoming Themed Schedule
May 2- Greatest Hits Edition (re-run one of your favorites of your own FIF recipes)
May 16- Weight Watchers Edition (thanks Tammy!)
May 30- Memorial Day Edition II

I love certain brands of granola bars but I've always wanted to make my own so that I know exactly what's gone into them (no additives or preservatives). I found a great chewy granola bar recipe on These turned out really yummy! I think you'll like them.

Now, I look forward to seeing your Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe! I won't be able to visit your recipes right away but fear not, I will stop by to visit your recipe as soon as I can!

Don't forget to link your specific recipe post link on Mr. Linky so I can see what's cooking at your house!

Oh, and be sure to put the title of your recipe in parenthesis! It makes it so much quicker for me to go back and search for recipes as I build my weekly menu.

I joined in again this week, with a fun way to serve a cucumber. It's a fun idea for a children's birthday party! See you!

Thanks for your comment on my creamy orange dip recipe (or, actually, Miracle Whip's recipe...). I serve it on crackers, or as a veggie dip, or sometimes as a sandwich spread...and most recently, I used it as a "tartar sauce" equivalent when we had fish sticks for dinner.
