This was great! Very easy to make with minimal ingredients needed. I followed the recipe as stated except I added chocolate chips. Just don't make the same mistake I did and add the chocolate to the warm mixture...all the chocolate melted!!!

I loved this recipe it was easy and my kids loved it! I didn't use the peanut butter and I added chocolate chips to it once I coated the dry ingredients with the sugar and corn syrup mixture I didnt find that it was dry once I put it in my 9x13 pan because while it was warm I put a piece of waxpaper on it and pressed down on it to compact the mixture in the pan ( I also sprayed the pan with non stick spray) and cut the bars shortly after that and they held together and my kids loved them. I also added a little cinnamon to the sugar and syrup mixture while it was coming to a boil. I will be making many variations of this!

Excellent taste and so easy. I only used 1/4 cup of brown sugar and it was sweet enough. However, they don't stick together well. I am having a difficult time cutting them. Is there a trick to it? I also pressed it together really hard but they still crumbles. Sigh.

This is a wonderful recipe....have made it several times with different dried fruits and also with my personal favorite...chocolate chips! : ) We are big fans of cinnamon, so I also added a bit to the recipe. Super good and super easy.....a great no-stress recipe for my children to help with as well!! Thanks for posting!

A great recipe for quick, easy granola bars. I used 2-1/2 cups of puff wheat cereal instead of the crispy rice . I divided the dry ingredients into 2 bowls and added coconut to one bowl (some don't care for coconut). I had to add a bit of honey to the mix for some extra stickiness. I then pressed each half batch into 8X8 square pans. They turned out great! I cut and wrapped the coconut bars in wax paper to give to dad for a nice lunch treat at work. Thanks for a yummy, easy recipe! I'll definitely be making these again and again.

These were great! Mine came out a little too dry, so they didn't hold together well. I skipped the raisins and added walnuts and almonds (after throwing them through the food processor). I packed these into mini muffin tins, because I don't have a 9x13 pan, they popped out perfectly! I'll be making these again soon and I'll try using a bit less dry ingredients so they stick together better. Thanks so much!

These are 10 times better than the store bought bars and super simple. I'm going to try mini chocolate chips in place of the raisins next time. Tip: if using regular oatmeal and not the quick, just use 1 cup.

This is the second time I've used this recipe as a guideline to make a tasty treat. This time I used some store brand Sugar Crisp and some stale granola that I wanted to get rid of :) I left out the raisins and guessed on the amount of peanut butter.. just enough to cover the staleness of the granola! This recipe is great because the ingredients are always on hand in my cupboards. Thanks spatchcock!
