I have made these bars before (very tasty made per the recipe!), but I was looking for a foundation for making something similar to the Nature Valley protein bars. I had to go with what I had in the pantry, so I used brown rice instead of corn syrup, brown rice puffed cereal instead of corn flakes, and an unprocessed cane sugar instead of white sugar (and used dark brown sugar--again just what I had on hand). I also added 2 cups peanuts (roasted at home and very lightly salted)and the whole bag of chocolate chips (bittersweet chips is what I had on hand), and I added a splash of vanilla and a scoop of protein powder to the peanut butter mixture before I added the dry ingredients. My end result was almost spot on for what I was going for, and it actually tastes even better than the store-bought bars. I cooked my mixture in the microwave for about 2 1/2 minutes. It turned out perfectly!
