Another substitution review...sorry...but we are trying to cut down on sugar and eat healthier and this looked like a great recipe to play with! I used 1/2 cup unpacked brown sugar, 1 tbsp honey, no white sugar, 1/2 cup applesauce and only 1 tbsp butter. Instead of rice krispies, I used a multigrain kashi cereal because that is what I had on hand. I also used white whole wheat flour and 1/2 of the chocolate chips. I used 1/2 cup chopped cashew, almond and pecans and I threw in about 1/4 cup of ground flax seed. I'm sure the original recipe is awesome, because my concoction was really good! Thanks for posting such a versatile recipe!
Sooooo good!!! This was the first time I've ever had a 2nd grader ask me for a recipe. Ha! This was delicious and held together very well. Thanks much!
Thank you for this fabulous recipe! These turned out absolutely perfect :) I halved the brown sugar, skipped the honey, and reduced the chocolate chips but next time I think I could take out even more sugar because they're still very sweet and delicious. Mine turned out almost cookie-like, yum! Will be making these again and again!
These are wonderful! I made them exactly like the recipe. So good and so much better than a processed granola bar from the store. <br/><br/>Yummy!
As long as you remember that these are a bar COOKIE, and not a healthy snack, you're fine. They are tasty. A little sweet for my personal preference, but a yummy bar cookie. So often granola bars are considered a healthy snack when in truth they are a treat. These are no different. Loaded with sugar, sugar and more sugar.
This recipe is a keeper! All the boys at my husbands work gobbled these up in minutes and the kids at my daughter's school were trading their lunches for her granola bars! Super easy to make too. Wonderful!
Per the other reviews, I used omitted the white sugar. We are allergic to nuts so I substituted Grape Nut cereal for the almonds, and whole wheat flour. Tasted like a cookie, very sweet. Next time I will reduce the amount of brown sugar to 3/4 cup and up the rice crispie cereal to 2 cups because that adds a little airy crunch. We had it for a dessert after dinner. I suggested reducing the amount of chocolate chips but the kids said NO. Thank you for a great recipe.
I made these last night for DD to take to a lacrosse game for her and her friends. These are excellent. I wrapped them up in waxed paper and they are a great take along treat. I didn't use the raisins and subbed butterscotch chips for the chocolate ones. Delicious. Thank you for sharing with us.
Super good. Easy enough for the 3 year old to help. The kids loved them.
Certified seal of approval from my whole family. I used whole wheat flour, dropped the chocolate chips, and added craisins. They are amazing! I'm planning to expirement with peanut butter next time around. And, I'll try other stuff as well. These are just perfect!
