Final Outcomes



So crunchy, so sweet, so wholesome. Well, wholesome in the fact that I used real Irish butter, oats, brown sugar and raspberry jam. But if butter’s not wholesome, then what is, I ask? What is the world coming to these days anyway.

Recipe can be found here. I highly recommend you make these for your own wellbeing.

And, speaking of wellbeing, you should probably go ahead and make these, too, while you’re at it.

I saw this recipe a few days ago and knew if I made it, the boy would pretty much do whatever I said. I had to work in pretty severe conditions but the final outcome was worth it, I assure you.

    Both of those looks SO GOOD. The raspberry bars may look a bit better, though. But that may have to do with my uber-powerful sweet tooth 😉

    Those bars look great and so does the recipe. Do you think there could be a substitute for some of the butter? or is all the 3/4 necessary for recipe success?

    Cream churned into butter couldn’t be MORE wholesome. It’s all natural, baby. 😀

    And besides, butter is love.

    I usually hate Nutrigrain bars but I think this version could turn me. I’m pretty sure they won’t taste like plastic.

    Those bars look AWESOME! I might have to make those for my bar eating husband. Would probably be much cheaper and healthier than all the bars he eats now.
