    Annacia's Note:

    This is currently quite popular in my wee town and the recipe is being circulated. Thought I'd share it here. One of the ladies brought it back from her vacation and now everyone seems to be making it. I've not tried it because of the sugar but it must be good. I'm guessing at the times as none were given.

      Made these with a little revision . . . was unable to find candied cherries this time of year so instead added crushed macadamia nuts and few chocolate chips. Flavor was wonderful however I don't think I pressed it down hard enough before baking . . . it didn't hold together very well. Very flavorful!

      Sooo goood!! They have a texture very similar to a granola bar, but with a more special flavor. I love the cerries in it, and I don't usullay like candied cherries :) They also smelled amazing while they were baking. Even DH said, "those are pretty good granola bars." and he is not sweets person at all! They store very well in a ziplock bag, but do become a little more chewy and less crispy after a day or so. Not that that's a bad thing!
