We’re off to the west coast this morning, to Vancouver Island – Victoria first, for the Victoria Taste Wine & Food Festival, and then across to Tofino. Being a planner ahead when it comes to road trips – particularly in the arena of food – I made up a batch of chewy granola bars to pack along. This will almost certainly cut down on the number of buttered bagels I pick up at drive-thrus on the way.
Tony & Penny at Highwood Crossing have a great recipe – I hadn’t made granola bars with sweetened condensed milk before – and of course you can add anything, nuts, seeds and dried fruit-wise – even chocolate chips. (Which no, doesn’t count as a fruit.)
