Notes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I would highly suggest not using oils when toasting your oats. The oats can absorb the oil, which can effect the flavor and texture of whatever you use them in. Nobody wants a soggy, oily granola bar.

    I didn't have cashew butter so I used peanut butter instead. The recipe is a nice mix of salty & sweet.
