This is an awesome recipe to build on. I only gave it 4 stars because it is WAY too sweet if you use 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup honey. It takes it straight into the "super sweet dessert" category in my house, and I like to serve these to my kids as a snack. The changes I make: 2 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup brown sugar, no wheat germ, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cup whole wheat flour, no raisins, 1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, 1 egg white and 1/2 egg yolk, 1/4 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup canola oil, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. We like chocolate chips and almond slivers in ours, but you can really add any dried fruit or nut you like. I used to always bake the full 30 minutes, but I am finding that 20 minutes is PERFECT for a bar that is similar to store-bought texture.
