Granola S'more Bars

Recipe for Granola S'more bars. Takes the classic campfire recipe and makes it portable!

The recipe takes the basic elements of s'mores but puts them into an easy to eat treat, no campfire required. The addition of oats gives the bars a nice crunch and also helps balance the sweetness of the marshmallows. I'm always a bit nervous bringing my treats into work (such pressure!) But these went over like gangbusters. Not only were all the bars eaten by the second day, but my boss said they were one of his favorite treats that I've brought in. I hope he remembers that when it's time for my yearly review.

Granola S'more Bars (from King Arthur Flour Baking Companion)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

6 tablespoons golden syrup

2 1/4 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup flour1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup graham cracker crumbs

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/4 cups mini marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt and stir together the butter, sugar, and syrup, cooking until the sugar has dissolved.  Stir in oats, flour, salt and graham cracker crumbs.

Press about 3/4 of the mixture into a lightly greased 9x9 pan.  Let cool completely.  Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the top, then the marshmallows.  Top with remaining crust mixture.  Bake the bars for 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let them rest for 20 minutes, then cut into squares while still slightly warm.
