      Chewy, actually very similar to a skinny cliff bar, but not as sweet and cheaper! Be careful not to over-toast the oats, rice, and sesame seeds--I toasted for only 10 minutes as opposed to 15. Useful recipe!

      Delicious! Using what I've had on hand, I've substituted Grape-Nuts & almond butter for the crispy brown rice cereal & peanut butter, respectively. It takes some elbow grease to thoroughly mix the ingredients, and the mixture is dense and chewy, so I find it easier to cut into bars with an electric knife. So worth the trouble, and I now make these regularly to keep on hand in the fridge & freezer. Thanks, Dancer!
