My son, who has dairy peanut and nut allergies, wanted so badly to be able to have a granola bar that my non-baker self broke down and made him these (sans walnuts, of course). Very easy. Very versatile. Unrefined coconut sugar works very well instead of brown sugar. You can also reduce the brown sugar to about 1/4 of a cup and they're still fine. I can put anything I want in them, though raisins and chocolate chips are the reigning favorite. I use light olive oil and add 1/4 cup flax seed and 1/4 cup oat bran, and they're even kind of healthy! have to bake them in double batches every time I make them because everyone loves these, not just my son. I must have given a dozen people this recipe already. This household will never buy granola bars again.
