    I tried this recipe last night - followed it to a T and after the bars cooled I tried cutting them and they all broke apart in small pieces and were more like crumbles than bars. The taste was a bit bland however I will not throw them away. I will use them for a morning cereal or as a topping (with a little sprucing up for flavor) for some kind of fruit crisp.

    This was exactly what I was looking for - a healthy granola (muesli for us in Oz!) bar which binds all your favourite ingredients without heaps of fat or sugar. I changed it a bit by using a mix of muesli flake, rice bubbles and oats that I tosted in the oven. I also added chopped dried apricots and a mix of toasted almonds, pecans and sunflower seeds. Obviously not as low in fat but delicious. These bars are more fragile than those with heaps of fat and sugar, but don't let that put you off, they are light and crisp and not the least bit sticky. Thanks MilanzMom and the C.I of A.

    This tasted great! However after letting it cool, I cut it and it turned out more into nibbles than bars! I am sorry I have to rate this low because it tasted great delcious! Also, I'll probaly eat the rest of it as granola with milk! Thanks!
