Love this recipe! Great to keep you satisfied for a long time. I have made this recipe several times using the exact ingredients but now I have made a couple of changes. Using almond butter instead of peanut butter and because I am trying to cut down on calories, I use about half a cup of honey and one small tub of applesauce to make one cup of honey/applesauce combo, which makes the bars a little more moist. This is now one of my staple recipes, i will never buy another store bought granola bar unless I am desperate!
yum. new favorite. didn't last long
These were good, if perhaps a little chewy for me. I did reduce the recipe by half, so perhaps I made a mistake, however, I'd like a bit more crunch. Gotta figure out how...Thanks for sharing a good basic recipe, Singin'Chef.
These are so darn good! I omitted the cinnamon cuz I wasn't sure how that would work with peanut butter. I have already eaten one and they are right out of the oven. I don't even care if the kids don't like them, but what's not to like. I halved the recipe just in case I end up eating all of these cut the kids don't like them. Not overly sweet or peanut buttery.

This is a fantastic granola bar recipe! Just the texture I was looking for - crunchy without being too hard to chew. I used the maple syrup option and really liked the flavor with the peanut butter and the fact that it was not overly sweet. I added about half of the suggested chocolate chips. Great recipe that I'll use often - thanks for sharing it! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2012
