Baked Raisin Bran (Bars)

"I created these raisin bran bars in hopes of getting my family started with something healthy in the morning. Good anytime! I try not to use refined sugar so I made with splenda. You may have to adjust amount of sweetner, depend on how sweet the cereal is to start out with. I used regular splenda, not the one for baking. If using splenda for baking or splenda brown sugar, be sure to cut in half."

    I like that these have no fat in them. I used real sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, and decreased the 1/2 c white sugar to 1/3 c based on a comment that they were too sweet. They were still way too sweet. I think the 1/4 c brown sugar would be enough. I baked them longer because they were kind of wet on the bottom. Next time I'm going to make them in a loaf pan so that they''ll be thicker. I sliced one in two and spread a layer of peanut butter between the slices. This was really good because it cut the sweetness down while adding protein. Also, two teaspoons of vanilla is entirely too much. I'm going to use one next time. I'm definitely going to make them again.
    Wow! I was really impressed with these bars. I used Total cereal (added 1/4 cup raisins) since that was all I had, Splenda sugars (used only half the amounts called for) & added 1 1/2 tsp cinn. I actually forgot the vanilla, but it was fine! These are still cooling so I only tried a sliver of it, but it was yummy. Thank you for sharing!

    These are yummy, but I found them too sweet to be a breakfst item. Now, I just make them with less sugar. I think 1/4 cup is just right.

    My kids love these! Personally, I wasn't so keen on them but considering the kids' response I just may make them again! Easy and healthy. I may use less vanilla next time and see how they do. Thanks!

    These were great! They are so easy to make and turn out very well. I cut them and individually wrapped them in saran wrap then stuck them in a snack size ziplock bag....perfect to send to school with the kiddies. I don't know how long they last that way as they were gone in 2 days, but excellent nonetheless. I will make a double batch next time and freeze some, that way they can just be grabbed right out of the freezer!


<p>Born and raised in Michigan but feel like a southern gal at heart. My parents were raised in Tennessee. I love it in the south, except the heat and chiggers. LOL Am married and have one spoiled teenage son and a sweet little shaggy humane society rescue named Scotty.&nbsp; Edit/also a little spitfire Pomeranian named Callie.&nbsp; I have worked retail for all my adult life.&nbsp; Edit/early retirement!&nbsp; I am trying to learn to cook and am addicted to ZAAR. I also love doing genealogy. It is so exciting to find new leaves on the family tree. We were always told our ancestors were English and Scottish, but it seems we have more Irish than anything else. We are fortunate enough to have had a gggggggrandfather that kept a diary. A lot of information from the 1700's in his 100 page diary. We were alway told that my Dad's ggrandmother was an American Indian but can't find anything to verify this. (Although we though some looked native american) It's alway's exciting to find long lost relatives. <br />One of my pet peeves is people that think it's OK to Say what I think without consideration for anyone else's feelings.</p>
