    They look fantastic. I have indeed tasted some magical things and as you say, even if the actual sensations are fuzzy in my mind, the memory remains.

    Would it be crazy if PB was peanut butter? Come on, you know you want to.

    What a great post, Hannah. I love this. You are inspired. x

    I will give these the thumbs up. What a funny story! I love how you lost the second half of the recipe. However, it looks like your memory or your intuitive skills served you well and your ‘creation’ is a big success xx

    wise words on memory – I forget so much and wonder why I remember the wrong things – but at least my blog does lots of remembering for me – and maybe the half remembering on this post will lead you to recreate these for us down the track

    I trust you. But I need verification. You’re going to have to work out that recipe and bring me a batch. 😉

    There are things that hold the fabric of society together. Personal responsibility and what not. Seriously. You will recreate the recipe and post it in due time like a responsible citizen of the world.

    Thank goodness I’m not the only one that does this. I have progressed to having a notebook in the kitchen so I can write down recipes, but I still have a foolish belief in my memory and think that if I abbreviate, I’ll remember later. As you know – no. It’s worse when the lost recipe is for something as good as these sound/look though!

    I love raisins (the squidgier the better) and I love how you garnished your photos with those little helicopter-seed-pod things. They are fun to throw – and I bet these bars are FUN to eat. Yes yes.

    Damn! I opened this, thinking “I’ve been looking for a great granola bar recipe” but alas! Ah well, I completely understand. We often diverge wildly from recipes, think it’s the best and then can never replicate.

    I trust, I trust. But even WITH a recipe my peanut butter brownies turn out different every time!

    Um, amazing look granola bars! WANT.

    I do the same thing too – make changes to a recipe (or make one up) and think “yes yes I’ll remember that”… and years later I remember the taste, but not the steps I took to get there!

    Raisins, huh? My eyes have literally narrowed suspiciously as I type! But if anyone can get me to like them, it’s probably you with your trustworthy granola bars.
