I made a few changes to make them a little less sugary and maybe a little "lighter". I used 1/4 cup of brown sugar, Trader Joe's organic chunky peanut butter, homemade SF maple syrup instead of corn syrup, homemade organic applesauce, dried blueberries instead of chocolate chips (the submitter of this recipe suggests to change out the chocolate chops and marshmallows with dried fruit and nuts if you would like, which I did), and I cut the wheat germ back to a heaping 1/3 cup Wheat Germ because I read a lot of reviews that claimed these bars were crumbly. Now, I baked these for 20 minutes at 350 and they were really well done. I don't know how to get the chewy consistancy of granola bars because it seems that even when I cut the time back, they're overdone. I don't mind them being crumbly, it's just I would like them to be chewy sometimes. I got eighteen bars, just like the recipe stated. I cut them up and individually wrapped them and stuck them in the freezer for weekly lunches and snacks. I get 18 organic bars for less than two bucks for the whole batch instead of almost five dollars for six. Not bad.
