Store-bought granola bars are full of things that are bad for you and marketed as healthy. I had to make them homemade, for peace of mind. I LOVED this, and best of all, so did the kids! I used all organic products. Used plain puffed cereal (wheat, millet, rice, kamut) instead of granola as it was what I had on-hand. I omitted the nuts so they could go to school, and replaced the raisins with chocolate chips. What a HIT! Soooo happy to have found a recipe that doesnt use a ton of oil and corn syrup (yek!)! Thanks Emily! :o)
