A spoonful of sugar (Makes the whole grains and Flax go down)

I bake whole grain baked goods every day.  Muffins, cookies, bread, cinnamon rolls, pizza.  My family is always chowing down the foods I create, especially if  they are slathered with cheese or sugar.

I made these granola bars six days ago on monday, double batch with whole wheat flour and a whole cup of golden flax seeds. Sometimes if I make things “too healthy” my family does not eat the baked goods.  But if I slather some cream cheese frosting on old cinnamon rolls or muffins, or some chocolate frosting on week old granola bars, they magically disapear.

Once in a while I will come out in the kitchen and a little mouse, named Benjamin, will have LICKED the frosting off the baked goods.  But he knows Mama has feelings on that score, so generally they eat the whole grain goody.  I was thrilled to wake up from my sunday afternoon nap and see that platter of bars greatly diminished down to two.
