Black Raspberry Granola Bars

“I like my granola fruity and nutty but not too sweet. A square or two of these is a hearty breakfast on the go with plenty of protein for staying power. Go ahead and try other jams/preserves if you want to vary the flavors. If you prefer not to use the brandy I suggest apple juice. However it will make the recipe sweeter.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 9x9 pan.
  2. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Add eggs, milk, honey, vanilla, and canola oil. Mix thoroughly – it will be evenly moist, but lumpy and a bit stiff.
  4. Pack about 2/3 of the granola mixture into the bottom of the pan.
  5. Mix brandy with melted blackberry preserves. Pour evenly over the granola mix.
  6. Top with spoonfuls of the granola mixture.
  7. Bake at 350 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Cool and cut into bars or squares as desired.
  9. Tip -- Melt the preserves in a pyrex measuring cup in the microwave on medium power to save getting a pot dirty. But cover it with plastic or a saucer to keep it from spattering.
