Very good, very easy, very high in sugar so not diet food (especially with the number you'll eat in one sitting!). :) These are a great substitute for the store bought granola bars though and you can easily make them all natural and suit your tastes, plus you can add in other healthy add-ins and they're way cheaper this way. I followed the basics of the recipe with substitutions to fit our family. Since we have a peanut allergic child, I used sunbutter (sunflower seed butter, which works the same in recipes). I didn't have rice crispies so I used a Cheerio-like cereal. I kept the proportions the same (5 cups dry ingredients with the oats, raisins, cereal) and used a combination of 5 cups of oats, cereal, coconut, dried cherries, finely chopped dates, sesame seeds, walnuts and white chocolate chips. The sour and sweet with the tart cherries and sweet white chocolate along with the crunch of the cereal and walnuts made them really good. I greased the pan with olive oil and used wet hands to press it in well, and it didn't stick at all or crumble. I'll definitely make more, with a mix and match of ingredients each time. I wrapped ours in waxed paper for quick breakfast/car snacks.
