    I've been trying to make a healthy granola bar at home, to mimic the Nature Valley "Healthy Heart" Oatmeal raisin bars, which I absolutely love but I'm thinking I can make cheaper. I'm having no luck finding a similar recipe.

    I've found an inexpensive one here, the Poor Man's Granola Bar, which is really good, however it's more of a "brownie" consistancy than of a "rice-krispie treat" consistancy, which is what I'm going for.

    Do any of you have suggestions for a granola bar with the consistancy of a rice-krispie treat? Or perhaps should I just add oats, raisins, etc. to a rice krispie treat and call it a day?

    Here are two that can be cut into bars. If you are interested, I also have a recipe to make into more of a cereal. In all cases the oatmeal is "old fashioned" not the quick stuff.

    Enjoy, Mike.

    3-1/2 cups oatmeal
    1 cup raisins
    1 cup chopped nuts
    2/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
    1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/3 cup honey, corn syrup, or molasses
    1 egg, beaten
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Combine all the ingredients; mix well. Press firmly into well greased 15-1/2x10-1/2-inch jelly roll pan. Bake in preheated moderate oven (350° F) about 20 minutes. Cool; cut into bars. Store in tightly covered container in cool dry place or in refrigerator.
