These weren't as good as they sounded. They laid around for a whole week of skiing with a condo full of people and didn't get eaten. I couldn't get them to stick together and the choc and pnut butter overpowered them. I might try them without these 2 ingredients.

This recipe was very good, definitely a repeat. I changed some of the dried fruits and chose a more nutritious puffed grain, but kept the same proportions. Next time I may add 1/3 cup more sticky stuff, maybe honey or soy lecithin. It was just a touch crumbly.

I had a little trouble with this recipe at first. The peanut butter mixture didn't seem to be enough to glue the cereal together, so I had to make extra. Also, I found heating the peanut butter and syrup in the microwave messy and more trouble than it's worth. Next time, I will cook the mixture in a big pot on the stove, then gradually add the cereal, which I think will help it mix more evenly. The end result, though, is fantastic, and much better than those expensive energy bars that you buy in the store. They are great for breakfast and a mid-afternoon snack. This one is a keeper!

These are good...probably better if I followed the recipe closer! I used Splenda in place of the corn syrup and sugar and found a trail mix with sunflower seeds, papaya, apples, raisins, cranberries and nuts. The only change I'd make to the way I did it is to add corn syrup instead of making the simple syrup... I also heated up the peanut butter mixture on the stove. I'll probably be making these often! Thanks for a great recipe! It's so versatile!

Wow! Great recipe, Janowa. My grandchildren love these, as do I!They gobbled up so many, I was afraid they'd be bouncing off the walls on a sugar high. This morning I made another batch, this time I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup brown (the dried fruits have lots already), I added Wheat germ and ground almonds for additional calcium, Vit B and minerals. They were tasty, too, and my grandchildren won't even suspect that there's wheat germ in them.Thanks for this great recipe that becomes a roadmap to better nutrition for our kids!
