Special K Bars

Start with 5 cups of Special K cereal.

In a pot, bring 1 stick of butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 cup Karo syrup & a pinch of salt to a boil.

Boil for 3 minutes. DO NOT walk away from this boiling deliciousness.

Pour over the Special K cereal and mix quickly and thoroughly. Press into a greased 9x13 pan. I am thinking of adding a layer of chocolate ganache. If you want this to set quickly, put it in the fridge or freezer. I left mine on the counter for a few hours and it was so yummy. Thank you goes to Love Veggies and Yoga for the recipe.

Banana Muffins

I had a lot of bananas that were at the point that I did not want them in my cereal. So, with the cooler weather, it was time to bake. This is a recipe I have had forever. I had to double the recipe, because of all the bananas, and made 1 loaf of banana bread & 12 muffins. I took 6 muffins to the neighbors that moved in across the hall on Saturday.

The recipe is really easy, but I think I will keep it to myself for now. Who knows, maybe it will show up on this site soon.
