I have collected cookbooks over the years and I do find it relaxing to sit in a relaxing chair and read cookbooks as a way to unwind.  I may not read the cookbook from cover to cover but will read sections at a time.  I also enjoy the books that include pictures.  The challenge is of course when I make a particular recipe, will it look like the one in the cookbook.  The following recipe does look like the photo in the cookbook.

I have been spending time reading the new cookbook I bought, "oh she glows", which I quite enjoy.  I decided to make the classic glo bar which I have paraphrased as a granola bar.  What attracted me to the bar is that I buy protein bars or a healthy 'clean eating' bar for myself and the DH to have as a snack during the day.  These bars filled the bill as a good snack.  I also figured out the carbs, protein and fat content using 'my fitness pal' based on 12 bars.  Each bar contains 191 calories, 24 grams of carbs, 9 grams of fat and 5 grams of protein.  If you don't have dry rice cereal you can substitute with another dry cereal.  These bars are gluten free.  Both the DH and I enjoyed the bars and we ate them over a period of 9 or 10 days.  I will make them again.

I can't the provide the original recipe to you as it is copy right protected and I didn't modify it enough to make it different from the original recipe in the cookbook.
