Thanks so much for posting this recipe! There are so many things I like about this recipe. First of all the bar came out great--just the right texture, not too crumbly or too soft. I like the fact that you can substitute many of the ingredients depending on what you like and what you have on hand. Since I did not have any GF crispy rice cereal, I used GF rolled oats and it turned out delicious. Also, the coconut oil, sugar, honey and peanut butter make a fantastic base for this mixture--not mention that coconut oil and peanut butter taste fantastic together! Flaked coconut and chocolate chips are also a delicious duo. This recipe was an answer to prayer.
We do love granola bars, whether as a snack or as part of a quick breakfast! It took a bit of doing for me to get all the ingredients together, & now that I have 'em, I'll be making this recipe again & again, because, in a word, these bars are DELICIOUS! Instead of the either of on the nuts & dried fruit, I did a combo of chopped almonds & mixed dried fruit ~ Very, very tasty! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
