|Oat and yogurt breakfast bars|
So imagine my delight when the recipe choice list for my virtual book club this week included a good-for-you, whole-grain cereal bar. I was all over that like white on rice.
When cooking from a book entitled Whole Grains for a New Generation, I didn't expect to find too many sweet recipes. Frankly, I didn't expect to find any at all, because I'm that new to cooking with whole grains.
This bar is all about the oats (just like my salted oat crack cookies but with actual nutritional value). I'm hooked on making oat flour simply by grinding up oatmeal in the food processor: genius! I modified the original recipe, based on what ingredients I could find (I'm hard-pressed to find quinoa flakes locally and didn't want to have to mail-order them just for this recipe), but I'm super-pleased with the results.
