Leave out the preservative and give your little one something simply good for them. I like to sneak in the grated carrot just to get another vegie into the mix but it's not necessary

These came together really quick and the kids loved them! I used Honey Granola for my cereal and omitted the carrot. I lined my pan with foil and then buttered that. That way, when it was time to cut them, I could just lift the foil out of the pan and cut the bars on a cutting board. Thanks for sharing!

Very yummy. I didn't use carrot but added handful of home roasted slivered almonds and pecan chips.

I used granola cereal with raisins and almonds in it along with some crushed chex cereal I needed to use up. These were very gooey and fell apart even after a few hours. They tasted good, but had too much PB. Next time I will use less PB and less syrup. Thanks for the simple recipe!
