If you live in the Bay Area or scout out bakeries while travelling, you’re probably familiar with Chad Robertson and Elisabeth Prueitt’s Tartine Bakery & Cafe and Tartine Manufactory. I’ve been fortunate to sample sweets from both establishments – namely, a classic croissant and Liège waffle – and am planning a return visit to purchase a loaf of their country bread (at the least).
Can’t make your way to San Francisco or don’t have time to stand in line for a treat? Then consider whipping up this granola bark, one of many recipes featured in Liz’s latest cookbook, Tartine All Day. It delivers everything you’d expect from a James Beard Award-winning pastry chef.
As you may suspect, the granola bark is chunky and crunchy and chock-full of healthy ingredients. And, of course, it’s scrumptious. Enjoy the snack as is or alongside fresh fruit and Greek yogurt.
