These are absolutely delicious. My daughter and I could barely stop eating them! The recipe is easy enough for kids to help out with and customizable enough it's easy to make it your own. I love having control over the ingredients I am feeding my family. Plus these taste way better than the boxed variety. Thank you for posting this recipe.

I used a combination of rice krispies and raisin bran for the cereal and doubled the entire recipe. These granola bars are absolutely amazing. I also added a couple scoops of peanut butter to these delicious bars. Thank you for posting a great granola bar. I will be making this recipe again!

Wonderful, adaptable, and delicious recipe! I left out the white sugar and used 3/4 C of brown sugar, and it was plenty sweet. To up the amount of fiber and protein (and because I didn't have rice crispies), I used Kashi Go Lean cereal in place of the rice crispies. These bars keep great, and one of them will stick with you all morning. These will become a regular recipe in our house; my husband grabs one on his way out the door in the morning, which is so much better for him than a danish or donut. Thanks, Manda!

Very good. The only problem is they don't last as long as the store bought kind because we eat them faster:) I made as called for but omitted the nuts. I may try to add some peanut butter next time as well. Thanks for posting!

These were so good. I took them to work, and EVERYONE loved them. I substituted a lot of ingredients. Instead of the chocolate chips and rice crispies, I used raisins and granola cereal. Instead of regular nuts I substitued red roasted peanuts. This is a very easy and quick recipe, and I would highly suggest it.

These are more cookie like than granola-ish to me, but that's perfectly OK. They are super tasty and really easy to make. Even my husband liked them enough to comment! I did make some substitutions and additions based on what was in the pantry, a very versatile recipe. Thanks, Manda!

Made these as a treat for my dbf! He LOVED them!! Used maple syrup instead of honey, didn't add any almonds (as I ran out) and added some dried cranberries to the mix! Next time, will add less sugar as they were a bit too sweet for him (I loved them as is! ;) Thanks Manda!

Very yummy and versatile. I omitted the honey and reduced both of the sugars and it turned out great. My cooking time was a bit quicker (about 18 minutes) but that could be my oven. Thx Manda, the kids will love these!

These were fantastic-sweet and chewy. They are really more like a cookie bar a than granola bar, but still very good! I used 1/2 the white sugar and they were still plenty sweet. I might even cut the chocolate chips down to 1/2 cup. Will definitely make again!

Made these tonight for the kids. Everyone loved them. We added dried cranberries instead of raisins and used walnuts instead of almonds. I used a bit less sugar and think I could use even less next time/elminate most of it. They are very sweet. They taste like candy! Yum. My only wish is that there was a way to make them a bit firmer so they would stay together a bit better. Overall, very good. We will make them again!
