  1. How about these great bars! Sooo very nice! I, too, used peanut butter [the chunky kind] instead of the almond butter, then cut back a bit on the honey! Outstanding taste & well worth keeping the recipe around! [Tagged, made & reviewed for Zaar Stars Recipe Tag Game]
  2. These are great bars! I used peanut butter like the other reviewer did as well. Also I cut back on the honey since I do not like overly sweet granola bars. I had to wait quite a bit to cut them because they were super soft for about after they were done baking. After I allowed them to cool for like 2 hours in the fridge I was able to cut them with ease. Great bars I plan on making much more often!
  3. Found it a little sweet; next time I would cut back on the honey. Also I couldn't get wheat germ, so i used hemp protien powder and it worked well (but made it look green). Thanks the putting this one up.
  4. These are really good - I think they will spoil me for the store-bought bars. Like Bev, I had to let them cool in the pan for a while before taking them out as they were quite crumbly. Although I had dried cherries on hand, I made them with dried cranberries, simply because cranberries are more easily obtainable and less expensive than the dried cherries. This will be a great way to use up the jar of almond butter that has been sitting in my fridge - I have enough left for one more batch.
  5. This is a wonderful recipe : ) I used recipe #23108, making my own granola from scratch before beginning this recipe. I did not have any almond butter on hand, so I subbed peanut butter, which I am sure changed the flavor, but still worked very well. I also used regular whole wheat flour and Craisins. I allowed the bars to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before removing. Still being quite soft upon removal, I allow to cool for another half hour or so before cutting completely into bars. The combination is quite delicious. Thank you, WI Cheesehead!


I am a Christian wife and mother of 3 kids. Since my DH's high cholesterol, we've been eating better. I never used to like cooking. Since eating better, I've liked learning and preparing new recipes. My kids haven't reconciled themselves to the new eating yet. I grind my own grain and make all my own breads.?Working 2 hours a day in the local high school lunch room.??I am homeschooling my high schooler.? ?Also found out 1 child has multiple food allergies (wheat, dairy, tomato, chocolate, etc) and another is gluten sensitive. So, we just started (July 09) eating gluten and dairy free. I've been busy with getting our house market ready, even though it's not the best time for that.?
