Tried these for the first time today--yum! I have a son who's allergic to wheat, so I substituted oat and quinoa flours for the all-purpose flour and flaxseed and amaranth for the wheat germ. The amaranth is still a little crunchier than I'd prefer, but the rest of my family liked it. The higher protein content of the quinoa & amaranth makes these very satisfying, filling bars. I also substitued some chopped prunes for some of the raisins, and that combo tastes good. The only thing I'm not crazy about with these is that the high oil content leaves your fingers a little greasy afterward. But that's not a deal-breaker yet.I'm going to try these next time with some chopped pecans.
