"Hi...I was searching for a healthy high fiber/low fat/low cal bar and loved this recipe...I have tweaked it out and after about 6 different tries came up with this which is nutritious and tasty... I wanted to lose the corn syrup and Marshmallows as neither are high on a nutritional scale and add some nuts etc for a little more interest.
