'These sweet granola bars are chock-full of butterscotch and chocolate chips,' reports Eileen Sears of Eagle, Wisconsin. 'The bars freeze well, so they make a quick snack or dessert that's easily portable and handy.'

These bars are a hit in MY house! The first time I made them, following the recipe exactly, they were somewhat dry. For the second batch, I only used 3 cups of oats and added a little more honey (I didn't measure, but maybe 1/8 cup). I'll definitely continue making these. Read More

These were pretty good. I chose them because they had no nuts & readily cupboard-stocked ingredients. The only change I'd recommend is reducing the butterscotch chips (they have an ultra-sweet, fake flavour) and maybe subbing white choc chips. I also used a bit more honey than 1/2 c as per review.

These are good, but boy are they sweet! I am not surprised . . .all that honey and the chocolate and butterscotch chips! But this is my first foray into granola bars and I'm very pleased with how they turned out. I went with one reviewers suggestion to add in only 3 cups of granola. Pure laziness on my part, actually. I just got tired of stirring! I put mine in the fridge to cool, and they got so hard it was difficult to get them out of the pan! I think this is a great base recipe for me to try other kinds, since its a bit sweet for me, but bf and I did really like them. Thanks! Read More

Didn't have choc chips, so I subsituted and used raisins and chopped pecans. Made them more into a sweet breakfast bar than a dessert. Very good! Not a lot of mess to clean up. Will def make these again. Great to use w/ leftover chips! Used suggestion to add honey and after leaving uncovered for the day, did not fall apart. Read More

This is a great base recipe. The first time I made it with only 3 cups of oats like others said and a bit more honey. I also used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose. I added 2/3 cups of chopped pecans and only used the one cup of butterscotch chips. My husband loved these and he doesn't normally like sweets. These were just the right amount of sweetness with wholesome goodness too. My 3 year old helped me make them and she loved them also. Update- okay today we changed it up again. This time oats and honey were same. Added 1/4 c. of flaxseed meal, still used whole wheat flour, added only 1/2 c. of pecans but also added 1/c. of almond pieces, kept the butterscotch chips at 1 c. but also add 1/2 c. of mini choc chips. Yumm! Read More

These were great my 3 year old and I made them together. He had a blast I followed the recipe as stated and had no issues with crumbling. My boys including hubby love them. Read More

These were yummy, BUT they are crumbly/ crunchy. Impossible to cut without breaking into a million oatmeal sized pieces. Did I miss a liquid ingredient? Read More
