    I spend money on things like Luna bars, granola bars, and nutri grain bars. etc It's cheaper to make them. I have a protein bar recipe made with cereal too. Just need to dig it out.

    The recipe is basically melted peanut butter, cereal of your choice and maple syrup. Gotta make sure the peanut butter is melted before adding the syrup. Then you put it in the fridge until cool and hard and cut.

    You could do lots of things with oatmeal too.

    i substitute honey for maple syrup all the time. You could also use mollasses though not sure about the taste.

    I created a breakfast muffin recipe from the Tightwad Gazette article in which all the components (ie. fat, sweetner) and their possible substitutions are listed in quantity. I'll try it first and if it works, I'll post the recipe.

    I knew something was wrong with you. I'm sure honey would be fine.

    Not sure what I will be making but I am again on the hunt for a recipe using buttermilk............think I saw one in a B H & G mag---hope I can find it again.

    I made some more homemade butter..........so have another pint of buttermilk to use.

    Hey you Palooka.............something wrong with ME???? What about you??? Maple is just one flavor that I can't do. My dad used to bring home maple nut ice cream if he wanted it to last longer----------knowing I wouldn't eat it!!

    If I 'have to' I can eat a maple bar......but not my favorite.

    Maple nut would be the first thing to go around here - hubby and I both love it.

    I made biscuits from scratch this morning. They were really good, with melted butter and the strawberry jam I canned last summer!

    Thinking I want to drag out the breadmaker and make a loaf of bread next. I have some sliced sharp Tillamook cheese in the frig, and I hear a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato basil soup calling my name...

    Here is a great cereal bar recipe that my family loves

    Apple Butter Bars

    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 1/2 cups quick cooking oats, uncooked
    1 1/2 cups sugar (I use only 1 cup)
    1 cup butter or margarine melted
    1 1/2 cups apple butter

    Combine flour, soda, and salt in a large bowl, add oats and sugar. Stir in melted butter and mix well.
    Press 1/2 of the mixture into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan.
    Spread the apple butter over the mixture.
    Sprinkle with the remaining crumb mixture.
    Bake in 350 degree oven for 35 minutes.
    Cool completely and cut into bars.
    Makes approx. 3 dozen.


    I use motts healthy harvest flavored apple sauce cups.
    The come in lots of different flavors and I add in fruit.

    That sounds perfect, Domestic Gal.

    I swear Niko posted a couple breakfast bar recipes here but I'm not finding them. Need to search some more.

    Picked up some peanut butter so I should make my first one's tomorrow. Out of cheerios so I think I will use the puff cereal I have.

    FF, I'm sending you some maple rum.

    My grandmother used to make a cake from breakfast sausage. It was kind of like a spice cake, very dense, very moist, very yummy! Have any of you ever had a cake like this for breakfast?

    You just DO THAT chickie butt.......and you will get some mail marked 'return to sender'.........maple...........UGH! You are SUCH a brat!!!!

    I HAVE a sample bottle of 'pure' maple syrup that was stuck in as part of a past Xmas present..............from YEARS ago. (still in my cupboard)


    LB---if you find the recipe---be sure to post it.

    Domestic gal.........that sounds EXCELLENT......and I am going to use my banana nut butter in it.........yum.........have even dug up a victim so I can make some.

    My BFF just gave me her grandmother's banana bread recipe today---and it has buttermilk in it......but not much. Still will help to get rid of my pint of buttermilk from my butter making.
