Fabulous Food Friday with Stepping into the Story

Fabulous Food Friday
 Welcome to Fabulous Food Friday! While exploring the blogosphere, I realized that there were many great recipes to share. So every Friday, I am going to  feature an awesome blogger with their great recipe! Today’s feature blogger is Sarah from Stepping into the Story.  Sarah is a teacher and a writers who loves taking time out for cooking a great meal. She has some wonderful recipes, along with some wonderful inspirational posts that you should definitely  check out.   If you would like to be featured, I'd love to have you.  Just shoot me an email at

Here’s a little blurb from Sarah herself:

I am a writer and teacher who is also an Army Wife. I love cooking (and especially eating what I cook!) so thankfully I also love running. Some of my favorite days are Saturday mornings that include stopping to get some coffee, then shopping garage sales and discovering the treasures I can find. I love decorating on a thrifty budget. My blog has turned into a catch-all of sorts, where I talk about my marriage, life as a writer, cooking, and decorating. It's been so fun to get to know so many people through it though and get glimpses into the lives of others!

:::Homemade Granola Bars:::

3/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 c sugar
8 oz plain yogurt
2 egg whites
2 T vegetable oil
2 T milk
2 t vanilla
1/2 c flour (can substitute whole wheat flour)
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
3 cups oats
1 c dried fruit
optional: chocolate chips

1. Combine sugars, yogurt, egg whites, oil, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix well.
2. In another bowl mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add to yogurt mix.
3. Stir in oats and fruit; add chocolate chips if needed
4. Spread dough on bottom of ungreased 13x9 pan
note: the recipe calls for a 13x9, but I feel like they come out too cake-y that way, so I spread them out on a baking sheet as much as I can; I like the thickness more
5. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes

I love these because they are a such an easy healthy snack to have around the house! It makes the house smell sooo yummy!
