      These are pretty good, but I think that they need some pecans or walnuts... I used real sugar, 2/3 cup dried cherries (limited the amount due to the strength of flavor), and two chopped Granny Smith apples. A nice quick breakfast/snack, but I think a little more texture is needed. The base is great and leaves plenty of room to play! Thank you!

      I think there was some operator error when I made these. I did use fake sweetner. I used splenda and splenda brown sugar. Well, the splenda brown is supposed to be used at half strength but I figured since the recipe called for sugar replacement that I would be ok. I was not. They wer cloying sweet and few of us would eat them. I may try them again with regular sugar.

      Tasty granola bar-like snacks! I used carrots and I added a little more than a tsp orange zest and 1/2 tsp orange blossom water, which were nice touches! I made a half recipe and a few substitutions. I used only 1/2 cup Sucanat instead of the sugar substitutes, I used regular (not lite) organic butter, I substituted the egg with flax (I have posted a recipe, Flax Vegan Egg Substitute, which isn't yet online- will post the recipe # once its up), used whole wheat pastry flour for the flour. I would say the serving size is right on the money- I baked in an 8x8 pan and cut mine into 12 smallish bars and would consider 2 bars a serving. Really filling like you said- I had 2 bars for breakfast and worked 5 hours without a break at work (retail at the moment at a *very busy* store) without feeling hungry or fatigued! Very tasty! Nice texture, too- they're chewy and a little crisp at the same time. I think these would be a great snack to keep on-hand instead of the ultra processed candy-filled storebought granola bars. I also think these would be very versatile- I'm sure you could use grated zucchini too instead of apples or carrots and any dried fruit. I highly recommend the addition of the orange zest with the carrots- great combo! Thanks Mirj!!
