Making granola bars
I have been making a pan of these every couple of weeks so Ben can take granola bars to work. They are very yummy and full of goodness. The recipe hails from Aunty Amandy.

Morning Sunshine Bars
1.5 cups of whole wheat flour
1.5 cups of AP flour
2 tsp BP, cinnamon
1 tsp BS
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup fruit (mashed banana, applesauce, pumpkin, something liquidy)
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1/3 cup oil
2 cups grated carrot
1 cup chopped dried fruit (dates, raisins, apricots)
1/2 cup nuts

1. Mix dry ingredients (up to eggs)
2. Mix remaining "wet" ingredients (up to dried fruit)
3. Add dry to wet in batches and stir well
4. Mix in last two ingredients (will be quite stiff)
5. Bake 375 F for 30 minutes in a 13 x 9 pan that is lined with parchment paper. Cool and cut into long, thin bars. Makes about 32 bars.
