I couldn’t sleep last night. Eventually I stopped trying. I went to the kitchen instead. I looked at the list of recipes I (said I) wanted to try… and picked one…
Then again, I could never just follow a recipe, I always have to “personalize” it. But to give credit where it is due, the original recipe is from Yummy.ph. How did I “personalize” it?
Well, for starters, I did not have muscovado sugar, so I used my vanilla sugar instead (reduced too) and added molasses (omitted the vanilla extract while I was at it). I reduced the flour (but not really by choice because I discovered, too late, that I only had about 3/4 cup of flour left in the pantry!) and since I reduced the flour, I reduced the baking powder as well.
All is well that ends well. So far, everyone says these bars are fantastic! I did discover, however, that it is best after being stored in an airtight container for 24 hours!
This is the first food for the gods bars that I baked using the small electric oven! And it is perfect for a small batch that just enough for our household.
