    Marmish's Note:

    These are a great alternative to store bought cereal and granola bars. They pack well and make an easy, quick snack or breakfast on the go. I like to use dried cranberries, but you could substitute any soft dried fruit like cherries or apricots.

      This is the first granola bar that I have ever made, but it was relatively easy. I really like the cranberries in it. It was a success!!

      Wow! Good, good, good! We substitute sunflower butter and roasted, salted sunflower seeds made in a peanut-free facility for the peanut products; soy margarine in place of the butter (allergies). Otherwise we make it as written, with cranberries. Word of caution: I'd recommend toasting things on the _bottom_ rack of the oven. I used the top rack the first time and had smoke billowing through the kitchen! To simplify things I use non-stick aluminum foil in the 9x13 pan, and use the bottom of a measuring cup sprayed with oil to squish the hot, sticky marshmallow mixture into the pan. Thanks for a nice recipe we use all the time!

      These were great! I used some tropical mix dried fruits as well as cranberries and used a mix of nuts instead of the peanuts. I also added a touch of allspice and toasted the nuts along with the cereal and raisins.
