It’s official blogging world. I cannot bake to save my life. While enjoying a relaxing Saturday afternoon at home, pondering what to make for a snack I remembered that I had been dying to try Tina’s Peanut Buttery Bars. They sounded so simple and easy (not to mention that they looked delicious) and I thought that I SHOULD be able to bake something with 5 ingredients. The fewer the ingredients, the less chances for screw up, right? Well not in my world. 🙁
I will admit, I changed a few (ok, 3) of the ingredients but according to my Food Science classes, they really shouldn’t have made too much of a difference. I’m thinking that my issue was with the “sweetener” that I used. I didn’t have any agave, so I used 2 Tbsp of some organic sugar crystal things and didn’t make up for the moisture factor that the agave brought. They turned out dry and crumbly, more like granola than the Peanut Buttery goodness that Tina made.
