These bars are delicious! My husband doesn't even like Grape Nuts and he wanted to eat these bars all day. The only thing I added was cinnamon (1/4 tsp). Next time I'm going to add mixed berries. I'll let you know how they turn out. Thanks!
This is just great! I really like Grape Nuts anyway, and I have hot Grape Nuts several times a week for breakfast. I used a bit of cinnamon and about a cup of nuts. It turned out wonderful. It was just hard to let it cool and not to eat while hot.
I wanted a recipe to make some breakfast bars for my husband, using Grape-Nuts, so used this recipe, added 1/2C Splenda, used 2 tsp vanilla butter nut flavor, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 1 C chopped dates! (He's not diabetic, but has high cholesterol) Awesome! Then I got inspired and did the same basic recipe with Heath Bar crumbles and English Toffee topping WOW!
Okay, so after sticking these in the freezer after cutting them...they tasted wonderfully! I used a combo of raisins and cranberries as well as a pinch of cinnamon. I like to take one out of the freezer and pop it in the toaster over so it's crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Next time I will add a 1/4 tsp cinnamon and a half cup of walnuts. Delicious! thanks!
These bars were moist and tasty. However, the calorie count was wrong. It appears to be closer to 107 calories per 1/12th of the recipe. Sounded too good to be true!
