These are good but not a granola bar in my mind; they taste like glorified rice krispy bars....tasty, but not as granla-y as I wanted it to be. Still a keeper, and I will continue making them until I find a different recipe. They were easy to make, have good flavor, and are a nice texture.
These are exactly what I was looking for. I've tried every granola bar recipe out there and I was disappointed with all of them. They all had a cookie texture and I wanted a more traditional granola bar texture...like a Cascadian Farms bar. These are it! Perfect texture and delicious too!
