YUM YUM YUM .. We loved these.. other than leaving out the cranberries, made as posted making for a great after school treat. Ended up with some nice soft, and chewy treats. Made for PAC Spring 2012.
Yum! These are great! I basically made them exactly as written except i used walnuts instead of almonds and they came out great, crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. I was pretty worried when forming them into bars because they were pretty watery and I didn't think they would firm up, but they did! So have no fear, these are great!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
great bars, very easy to adapt to individual tastes. my dh who hates peanut butter loved these and asked for me to make them again! I made these a while ago so i can't recall all the adjustments i made, but i know i added pumpkin seeds & sesame seeds to the sunflower seeds & ground almonds as i didn't have enough. These froze really well. next time i will make some smaller bars too as these really fill you up
Yummers! Although I made a few alterations to the original recipe based on my taste preferences and what I had available (pecans instead of almonds, wheat germ instead of flax seed, 2 bananas=1 cup + 1/2 cup yogurt instead of just bananas, no cranberries, approx. 3/8 cup chips and rest coconut flakes, and a dash of almond extract), I have to say that they are great! They hold together well, are super yummy, and are much healthier than commercial granola bars (chock full of preservatives... ewww!) Right now I'm waiting for them to cool, but I plan on freezing some and taking them to school with me for lunch. Thanks for a great recipe!
