These bars are flavorful and delicious! You can really taste the spices. They turned out much cakier than I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised! I used Smart Start cereal, and the flakes added a nice chewy texture to the bars. Plus the glaze made them nice and sweet! Thanks, BeachGirl, I'll definitely be making these again!
