Chewy Granola Bars Recipe

Student Cookbook: Great Grub for the Hungry and the Broke

I got a new cookbook called The Student Cookbook, and its full of recipes that require very little time, and most or all of the ingredients are really cheap and easy to find. Right now I'm making English flapjacks. They're like chewy granola bars, kinda. Here's a recipe for anyone (broke or rich) who wants to try them. The ingredients are super cheap, and most people already have all the stuff in their cupboards.

Preheat oven to 300.
  • 13 Tablespoons butter (I used salted)
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup 
  • 1 scant cup of brown sugar 
  • 2 cups rolled oats 
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Once melted, add maple syrup and brown sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Add the rolled oats and put into a 8x12 (I used a 8x8) lined with parchment paper (wax paper). bake for 20 minutes, slice immediately and let cool.

Conrad and I had an amazing day together yesterday. We woke up, ate rice and eggs, went to Barnes and Noble (in search of home design books, for when we build our dream home), Best Buy (in search of new phones, washer/dryer, etc.), PetSmart (in search of a furry or feathery companion), and Old Navy (in search of a deal on summer clothes). Then we saw a matinee showing of Date Night. After we came home, we went on a walk through downtown, came home and had stroganoff with lemon grilled asparagus. Then we stayed up doing homework, reading books, watching old home videos my parents let us borrow, went to bed, and slept super well!

Hope everyone's having as good of a weekend as we are!
