I have to revise my review. I originally made this recipe with oatmeal intead of Grape Nuts and really liked it. I have since made it with the Grape Nuts and also like it that way. One modification I have done is cut the sugar in half and used half honey in lieu of half the corn syrup. Comes out great either with oatmeal or Grape Nuts. Oatmeal version is softer more like a traditional Power Bar; Grape Nuts is crunchier more like a dessert I think. Regardless of which way they're made they're great!
I am a tweaker, I admit it. I tweaked these because all that grape nuts sounded a little boring. I used 1 cup of grape nuts, & enough chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds & chocolate chips to make up the other 1 cup. You have to mix quickly though, the syrup mixture hardens pretty fast. These were delish!
These are so good however I reduce the amount of karo syrup and use mostly honey in its place. I also used turbinado (raw) sugar instead and used half oats and half grapenuts. I sprinkled the top with chocolate chips. This is a filling and delicious snack bar and so easy to make--better than power bars. I love this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
My family loved it. Even my toddler. Save your self some time spray your pot and spoon with baking spray its keeps everything from sticking and makes it easier to spread in the pan. I added some chocolate chips after putting it in the pan before it completely cooled.
Very good- very "peanutty"- To reduce calories I used Splenda sugar blend (1/2 cup) reduced corn syrup by half and added 1/2 cup honey (next time I will try agave syrup since it is better for you than all of that). Added 1/2 cup wheat germ and next time I will try to add in some protein powder and powdered milk (to increase calcium). I will also try dried cherries. Overall my 9 and 5 year olds chowed them down as did my hubby so I like this recipe!
