This recipe. No cloves. Less sugar. No raisins (because raisins are ew). Perfected.
The flavour of these are amazing. They are so moist and have an abundance of juicy blueberries in them. However, I seem to have lost some of the “muffin” quality.

Um, for as much guessing as… Continue reading Toasted Coconut, Chocolate, and Apricot Granola Bars
