I found this for a response to healthy breakfast on the run with natural ingredients. I intend to make these for my DH and I too. I found it on Iowa State University's whole grains food recipes site.

I do like these. I made a couple substitutions. Instead of the flour called for, I used half spelt flour and half soy flour. I also added flax seeds to replace the oat bran and approximately 3Tb. More applesauce. Great breakfast on the go.

I really like these. They are sweet but not too sweet, nice and chewy, very satisfying. I didn't make them for a breakfast substitute, but rather for a sweetish snack that was healthy. I did make a few changes - to increase the "healthiness" I used buckwheat flour instead of white flour, and to add more omega 3 fats I used 1/4 c chia seeds instead of the oat bran. I was out of raisins, so I used 1/2 cup dried cranberries, and I added more total "healthy" fat by adding a tablespoon of coconut oil and two tablespoons of almond butter.

I made the individual "muffin" portions rather than the bars. At 22 minutes, they were on the verge of being burnt. I would recommend checking them at 18 minutes. The taste reminds me of a bowl of apple and cinnamon oatmeal. They are a bit dry but good with milk or coffee. I'm not sure why the recipe recommends refrigerating them since most granola bars or muffins you don't need to. I felt refrigerating them greatly diminished their quality as they became rubbery and lost a lot of their flavor. They are quite filling though with a nice flavor when fresh.
