I have made this several* times now, and make substitutions with on hand items (nuts, flax, pumpkin seeds, dried fruits & berries, etc.). Very easy to go organic or 'raw' with this recipe (I used puffed millet instead of 'rice' cereal). I added a few Tablespoons of molasses to give it more 'glue.' I always keep it in 'granola' form & take a cupful to eat on my way to work. A great healthy, flexible recipe.

5 stars for the flavor of these, I agree that they are wonderful! I'm giving it 4 stars because I had the same problem that the first reviewer did with them not holding together very well. I made a full recipe and used 1/2 c of honey, I will try 3/4 c honey next time as Sara 76 recommends. Thanks for sharing!

These are fantastic! I love them, as do the kids! they are quick and easy to make, full of good stuff, and so tasty! I used 3/4C honey, based on the previous review, and they turned out perfect. I used a large drinking glass as a rolling pin, to press the mixture down firmly, and and I popped it in the fridge for an hour before I cut it. Thankyou for sharing such a fabulous recipe!
