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!

Very, very peanut-buttery. Still, makes for a quick snack that's probably healthier than store bought options. I make my own granola, leave out the carrot and substitute brown rice syrup for the corn syrup (corn syrup is a dirty word these days). Biggest plus here is that these literally take 2 minutes to make. I can press it into a baking dish to cool overnight and it's ready to cut in the morning.

Easy, cheap and good! I subbed 1 cup of krispy rice cereal and 2 cups granola, to make them lighter. these actually made 16 bars -- BONUS! #1 did not like the raisins in the granola, but the rest of us loved these.

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!

Excellent and wonderfully simple! I used my homemade granola along with honey instead of corn syrup (we prefer more natural). Didn't heat it, just mixed it all together, pressed it into the pan and set it in the freezer for an hour, then cut it into bars. Put it back in the freezer and later put them in a ziplock bag and stored them in the freezer. It's plenty sweet with honey so beware if you try it that way.

Delicious! I used brown rice syrup (we have issues with cornsyrup) and replaced half the granola with chocolate chips...They melted into the mix very well. The result was a rich, gooey kind of bar cookie, so I pressed some granola (Hemp Plus--a nice light granola) into the top, sliced the bars when cooled, and pressed them bottom to bottom to make them stick together so they'd be less messy. Very good, and I sent DH with them on his long plane flight! Thanks, Tish, for something else to wake up to (or go to bed eating..)

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