Monkey Bars

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by TheDancingCook

These sweet and chewy bars are chock full of goodies; a great treat for kids to eat and/or help make. I made these with the help of my 4 y/o on a rainy Saturday. I measured, he poured and stirred. Cut bars smaller to serve more people. I believe this recipe originated from a brand name baking cookbook.

These were decent. I just wasn't a big fan of the bran flakes in the bars, although it sounded really good, I had a bit of a problem with the texture. May try again, though.
