Protein Granola Bars With Kashi Golean

"This is my compilation/adaptation of many granola bar recipes. I tried to make these low calorie and high protein, but non-splenda products (syrup and brown sugar) can be used. Any type of dried fruits can be used, but I highly recommend using cranberries, raisins, and dates. I want to attempt using a jam either on top or in the mixture, but I haven't tried yet. Let me know what you add/substitute so I can give it a try too. Recipezaar doesn't have all the ingredients in their database, so my calculations are: calories 171.4 per serving, protein 10 grams per serving."
