I make these regularly for my kids who adore them. Whenever they share with a friend I get an urgent phone call from their parents asking for the recipe. Great for school lunches! A few adaptions : honey rather than corn syrup, and substitute 1/3 of the graham crumbs with ground flax....and always, always real butter!
They set up beautifully, make perfect, chewy bars every time....I line my pan with tin foil, then flip the bars out after cooling for -10 minutes, and slice while still soft. Delicious!
I made them vegan with vegan marshmallows and margarine. I had to add water to get them to hold together. Maybe if I had not done the chocolate and marshmallow on one layer and put them throughout they would have held their shape better.
Mine are still in the oven but I did make some changes. I used granola instead of oats and I used rice crispies in place of the cracker crumbs. It still seemed a little runny so I added some oats after to thicken it like rice crispy treats. Then I am letting them kool and baking as it said. Oh I put the entire mixture in the pan and set to cool and then topped with marshmallows and chocolate chips
Very tasty but mine fell apart.
I'll definitely make these again. Another sure way to get oatmeal into the kids! I made them as recommended with no changes. They turned out great! Thanks!
These things are awesome! I've practically eaten the entire batch myself!
We all really enjoyed these. I think next time I will use chopped milk chocolate because I really do not like chocolate chips. I double the recipe which was way too much so I think I'll leave it as is next time.
Sooooooo good! When I have a chocolate bar craving, I eat these healthier alternatives instead. I cut back on 1/2 the butter, and subbed 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and the taste was still great. Sometimes I throw in butterscotch chips or some peanut butter for variety. Thanks for the recipe! :)
I used butter flavored Walmart brand syrup. I had to make another batch, they took longer to make than to eat.
Oh holy YUM!! These are fantastic! I used whole wheat flour (to assuage my guilt a bit) and it tasted great. These aren't as quick or as nutritious as my regular all-oat granola bars (Quickie Granola Bars)so I just make them occaisionally, but WOW do they taste good! Thanks for posting
