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!

very good I used bran buds instead of the brown rice cereal. I only had vanilla protein powder and everything turned out great. You can switch up any of the ingredients and I'm sure it will turn out fine. Great recipe!

I'm really happy to have tried this recipe! These are great. I skipped the sugar and used 1/2 corn syrup and 1/2 maple syrup, and I also added some dates instead of all the raisins (thus I didn't need the sugar.) I'm thinking about trying other nut butters in the future, for variety. I'll be using this recipe a lot, thanks for posting it!
