Just made two batches, one with just choc chips and the other with walnuts and golden raisins. I felt like the amount of oats wasn't enough so I put in another cup. However, I used Agave Nectar instead of honey, and flax seed instead of wheat germ, so I'm thinking it seemed really wet because the density and texture of those ingredients isn't like what's in the original recipe. I needed to bulk it up a bit more. Agave has a much lower glycemic index and I cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup like many of the other reviewers suggested. I feel like these bars should be heartier and not such a sugar treat. But frankly, I think it was not the best decision. They could have been sweeter, chewier and less crumbly. Next time I will stick closer to the recipe provided. I'm giving 5 start regardless because it was my error. I'm sure they will be even better next time.
