Chewy Sweet Granola Bars
(aka -Hudson Bay Bread)
2 cups butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup honey
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
10 cups regular rolled oats
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugar, honey, cornstarch and corn syrup until combined. Stir in oats. Dough will be crumbly. Press firmly into a 15x10x1 inch baking pan. (I would recommend pounding with the side of your fist as if pounding rice krispie treats into a pan - kinda messy, but worth it!) Bake 375 for 22-25 minutes. Rotate the pan once and cook until the top is light brown and has tiny bubbles across the entire surface. Do not over bake Cool and cut into squares.
Next time I might add mini chocolate chips or dried cranberries.
These were so yummy and of course with the amount of oatmeal they contain, they must be good for you, right?!
