I've tried a number of granola bar recipes on this site and hands down this is my favorite. Moist chewy and just loaded with flavor. Followed the recipe to the letter and wouldn't change a thing!! Read More

These are so good and easy to make! I was disappointed that my chocolate chips melted when I poured the hot honey peanut butter mixture over it but it still tasted so good that it didn't really matter:) Read More

This recipe is a great starting point for ratios. I substituted the rice cereal for extra oats, granola for chopped pecans and sliced almonds, and the dried fruit for seeds (flax, hemp, chia, unsalted sunflower). I used old fashions whole grain oats. Rice cereal goes stale quickly and adds empty carbs. I don’t mind the chocolate melting and mixing more evenly. Not too sweet. I will be making this often way better than any store bought. Read More

Totally stuffed this recipe because I didn't read the recipe I just added all the ingredients together and didn't melt the liquids first. Also I didn't have granola so I added extra oats and rice puffs instead. Also my son doesn't like much fruit used some currants and added pepitas and sunflower seeds. Also I don't like to use sugar so I used a heaped tblspn of organic peanut and cocoa spread. So after I realized I mucked it up I decided to bake it for about 10min. All in all my son (who is celiac) absolutely loved them and I now have to make them again and remember what I did! Read More

Like making healthy rice crispy treats. I used a cup of trail mix instead of the fruit and chocolate. I also added more dried fruit and chocolate chips. Note: keep chocolate in the freezer to keep it from melting as much when mixed in Read More

Quick easy recipe & delicious. I added & substituted a few things. I used organic agave nectar instead of honey. I love fruit snacks so I went all out crazy; I added thinly sliced coconut chips dried raisins dried cranberries dried dates dried guava fruit. The servings came out to a lot more than I expected (pleasantly so). The one thing that I can say on a not so positive note is that the chocolate chips melted when I poured the peanut butter mixture. Not a deal breaker still gave it a five. Oh I forgot to butter the pan but it caused no problem. Eat enjoy & be merry! Read More
