Here are some photos of the aforementioned bars:
Looking at these again just makes me want to gobble one up! I'm quite pleased with how they turned out, both in terms of appearance and, more importantly, taste. I am fairly certain I'll be making these again ;)
Getting back to my scones: after they sold (and my salted caramel chocolate chunk bars), I decided to make more scones! This time I opted for apple-cinnamon scones with roasted pecans. I am going to start "celebrating the season" more by making baked goods that really highlight the time of year. Apples are in season and the Galas I used in my scones came from a nearby cider mill, so not only did I support local but I took advantage of Michigan's bountiful apple season: fall!
After I publish this post, I'm off to my kitchen to whip up a batch of "Figgy-Walnut Oat Bars." The locally grown figs I found at Whole Foods looked great and were on sale so I thought, I'm going to do something with these guys. And I'm going to!
