Recipe by Scotty & Callie's Mom
I created these raisin bran bars in hopes of getting my family started with something healthy in the morning. Good anytime! I try not to use refined sugar so I made with splenda. You may have to adjust amount of sweetner, depend on how sweet the cereal is to start out with. I used regular splenda, not the one for baking. If using splenda for baking or splenda brown sugar, be sure to cut in half.

I like that these have no fat in them. I used real sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, and decreased the 1/2 c white sugar to 1/3 c based on a comment that they were too sweet. They were still way too sweet. I think the 1/4 c brown sugar would be enough. I baked them longer because they were kind of wet on the bottom. Next time I'm going to make them in a loaf pan so that they''ll be thicker. I sliced one in two and spread a layer of peanut butter between the slices. This was really good because it cut the sweetness down while adding protein. Also, two teaspoons of vanilla is entirely too much. I'm going to use one next time. I'm definitely going to make them again.
