quick cooking oats
toasted wheat germ
packed brown sugar
blanched whole almonds
it was just ok.. really sat in the stomach for a good while after eating.
My husband is out on the trail often for his job and it is mostly "backpack" style. He loved these and said they are filling, compact, yet tastey. The have just enough sweetness but not over powering. I strongly recomend them just as the recipes calls for them to be made
My husband and I needed some trail bars that weren't so overly sweet that they tasted like candy bars. The store bought granola bars just have way too much sugar. This recipe was perfect. It's quick, easy to make, and turned out so well, I have to make another batch for this weekend. Everyone ate them before I even got them packaged. They are sweet to taste, but not cloyingly so. They are very filling, and dense. I used plain raw almonds, instead of blanched ones, and it was fine. I toasted my own wheat germ, using untoasted (aka the cheap) version. I put it on a baking sheet for 5 minutes at 350F. Perfect.
These are great! Not too sweet, and completely portable, as long as they aren't being crushed. I can see many ingredient possibilities with this recipes--sub pecans for the almonds and add mini chocolate chips for a German chocolate version, add chopped dates or raisins for another. Thanks!
Great taste! I was out of Wheat Germ, so I substituted an equal amount of ground flax seed. It adds a different flavor & it tastes great! Very quick to make. I will shorten the cooking time a tad because my edges were VERY dark.
