"A quick and yummy way to start the morning. You probably have all the ingredients right in your pantry. You can use your imagination to add other dried fruits, sesame seed, or other nuts, wheat germ, etc. Maple syrup or light corn syrup can work as sweetener substitutes for the honey."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I was reading this recipe and it sounds great,, but why are we preheating oven in step 1 if these are not baked?
The principle was great, but this way FAR too sweet for my family's taste. I use natural PB without any sweeteners, and I still think even leaving out the brown sugar entirely would be plenty sweet enough. I'll try it again without the sugar, but as written, I think it's only just 'ok'. Sorry. :-(
Great granola bar! I used light corn syrup instead of the honey and was very satisfied with the result. I also wanted to add chocolate chips to the bars but I didn't want them to melt when I stirred them into the hot mixture. Instead I mixed everything as the directions said and laid down a layer of granola, sprinkled chocolate chips on top, patted down another layer of granola, chips on top of that, and then a final layer of granola. makes a very thick and chewy granola bar, much better than those paper thin ones from other recipes.
This recipe is great! Why have I not tried making granola bars at home before this. It was so easy. I did change it up slightly, but that's the nice thing about this recipe, you could make it in many different varieties. I added an extra 1/2 cup of applesauce as well as 1/2 cup of ground flax seeds. Didn't have sunflower seeds, but used chopped peanuts once and walnuts another time. I used chocolate chips in place of the raisins once and used the raisins the second time. It was great both times. Kids and husband gobbled it up. You could easily add several Tbsp of brewers yeast and make these into yummy lactation bars!
I only used the first 6 ingredients. I actually used some southern style-Delta Cane flavor syrup(found in pantry, and needed to use up). I also chopped up about 1 cup of roasted almonds. These bars came out so good! Exactly what I was looking for and had the taste for. Great no-bake granola bar!
Hi, Rachelle, you could omit the peanut butter, but this recipe needs a "binder", something to hold it together, and the flavor would be altered. Play with it, and send back any results.
Read your review Kristin, and your right, the pic. does not match the recipe, however, there are other pics. there, and one of them is mine. Please check it out.
I have tried this recipe twice now and it is very good! I omitted the sunflower seeds because I didnt have any but added a bit more coconut because i love coconut. One person commented something about preheating the oven in step 1? Must have been some other recipe they were reading or it has been corrected since the comment. They are soft and chewy and stay very well at room temperature in a sealed container.
