These bars are really good. They remind me a lot of 'Get Up & Go' Bars, but without the big crunch (the others are made with Grape-nuts cereal). The only change I made was to use 1/2 cup corn syrup, and 1/4 cup of honey. I think the honey adds a great flavor to the bars. Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe, I will definitely be making these again!
I've never had a lot of success with 'no bake' granola bars...until now. This is a terrific recipe. So easy and quick to make. I didn't have everything specified in the recipe, but was able to substitute nicely. That's the beauty of a recipe like this. I didn't have enough craisins, so added some diced dates, pecans in place of the almonds, and because it goes so well with peanut butter, I threw in some milk chocolate chips. Thanks Seasoned Cook for a wonderful treat. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #26
These are awesome!! I love, love, love cranberry and almond together. I followed the recipe almost exactly, the only change was I replaced the vanilla with almond extract. So good.
Filled with things I like and not overly sweet. Even though I packed mine down hard they were pretty airy. I used "quick oats". I've never heard of quick rolled oats so I assume I used the right thing. I'd make a few modifications next time, but overall pretty good!
I've made this a few time for my husband to take in his lunch. He loves it (I don't eat peanut butter - suspected allergy - but it sure looks good). I use sunflower seeds instead of almonds (less $$$) and also throw in a little flax seed. After pressing in pan I chill in fridge then cut into bars(this cuts beautifully), wrap each in saran wrap, throw them all in a freezer bag. He justs grabs them from freezer as needed and lets me know when he's out. Last time I doubled the recipe and put it in a 10x15 jelly roll pan. The bars were a little thicker but I just cut them a bit smaller. Thanks for a great recipe!!
You weren't kidding when you describe these as addictive! I have made these twice now and they are the only granola bar recipe I have tried that sticks together so well. I think I've been successful with them sticking together because I let them set for at least 4 hours after pressing them into the pan. Thanks for posting, this is a keeper!
Recipe was really yummie but unfortunately my bars wouldn't stick so well, really don't know what went wrong!! So we had chunks and crumbs.. But still tasted good though, next time I will use less oats, maybe that will help them stick better together.
These are great. The kids loved making them. We put in white chips instead of the nuts. The one thing about them is that they are very sticky and do not hold as well as I hoped. We individually wrapped them in wax paper and stuck them in the freezer. Beats the store bought brand that has HFCS in it. Also, I'm going to put them in a smaller pan next time - like a 9 x 9. The 13 x 9 is just way to big and made the bars thin. Thanks again for a keeper.
Awesome!! We all loved these so much.. I have never made granola bars before and these were so simple and turned out great. I will enjoy playing around with this in the future by mixing different fruits and nuts into the mix. I had my family over for lunch yesterday and I gave them these as a snack, later in the afternoon and they were met with much praise, so I sent them home with a bunch of them. Another thing I loved about this recipe is how much cheaper it is to make these at home than buy bars from the store and with the yield it is a great thing to put in the cookie jar for the kids to eat. A great recipe Seasoned Cook I am so glad I tried these and will definitely be making again..
Tasty granola bars, but mine didn't set up as hard as I would have liked. I will definintely make these again and see what happens!
