birthday cake batter granola....!

birthday cake granola bars

....there are a lot of cake batter recipes out there! this awesome fudge, these pancakes, or these krispie treats!....can't complain though because who doesn't like cake batter stuff...?....and although i tried to find recipes that created the cake batter flavor from scratch....all i could really find were recipes that added some dry cake mix to the recipes....i guess that works and saves time too..... these granola bars are made with this stuff....

....found a couple granola bar recipes and tweaked them a little....

birthday cake batter granola bars

4 1/2 cups of quick cooking oats
14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
6 tablespoons of dry yellow cake mix
5 tablespoons of melted butter

...mix the oats and dry cake mix (you can add other stuff too but you may need to add a little extra condensed milk depending on how much other dry ingredients you add in)....add the milk and butter and mix everything really well....add to a foiled 9X13 pan (i also sprayed with some non stick pam)...and spread into an even layer in the pan....bake @350 for about 20 minutes (leaves them a little chewy...but if you like them crunchier bake for about 25-30 mins)...let cool and cut into bars or squares....

...this is after they baked and are just a little brown around the edges.....(the house had an awesome aroma of cake baking in the oven...!)

.....and you get birthday cake batter granola bars.....

.....these are just the granola bars with tops dipped in candy melt and dipped in some more non-pariels...then add a stick....(these were the kids favs)....

....this is just the granola bars that didn't look so great crunched up and added some mini m&m's and some fun party hats (made from candy melt).....

...and i try to kid myself that since these are "granola" that they are better for you (yeah right!) but they were pretty tasty and you do get the birthday cake flavor coming through....

....taking the rest into the ladies you drawl little one's bloodwork on a regular basis...they are awesome so they definitely deserve some tasty treats this week.....thanks for stopping by and have a week filled with awesome sauce...!
