I’ve cooked something similar, but added Flax seed, powdered milk, and peanut butter. They were quite tasty!!
I’m gonna have to try this one too… it sounds pretty good.
- October 10, 2012 at 10:29 am #433774AngelXpressWonderful!! Thank you! It’s hard to find recipes that please both toddlers & teenagers, but this was great.
mmmm, maybe next time I might add dried bananas.

That sounds tasty too! If you decide to try that, let us know how they turned out. 🙂

this is almost to easy. if this is all it takes to make these…and they are so expensive in the store. of course, this is the only bars my kids will eat.
i think i will make these tomorrow.
- October 18, 2012 at 11:18 pm #434009AngelXpressok everyone, this recipe has created a war in my house! my daughter & love the original recipe, the teenager wants the crumbled dried banana (tasted great with chopped pecans) and the toddler ate every crumb of the batch i made with dried cranberries. being as they are ahealthy and inexpensive treat, i’m not complaining, so i guess i’ll just rotate the selection.
btw, i goofed on my last batch and only used 1/2 c brwn sugar, and it still came out great.

i made these today. they were so easy it scared me. they have been out of the oven for about 30 minutes and half the pan is gone.🙁 i think this will be on the weekly bake list.

Was there any significant difference in the batch where you used only 1/2 c. brown sugar? I am thinking I will try that….

How long will these last in the pantry if I were to wrap them and store them in a container? Has anyone tried this yet?
- January 29, 2013 at 3:14 am #436809bethaliz6894
i would love to be able to help you on how long these would las tin the pantry but mine dont last long enough to cool and be wrapped…i have 3 kids. 🙂 they eat them fast. my guess is they would last about as long as a homemade cookie.
- February 16, 2014 at 3:34 am #451021Samsmom05Can’t wait to try. My family loves them,

Wow this will save me so much a month my 3 kids go through granola bars likes water plus these are homemade ♥ im trying these tonight!!!!
Anyone have a good recipe for those fruit filled breakfast bars?
- February 19, 2014 at 7:23 pm #451172adburgeI am so trying these this weekend as well, boy do I have a lot of cooking to do. Been looking for a simple recipe for Chew Granola bars, all the other recipes have tons of ingredients that I don’t necessarily keep on hand. Everyone in the house takes lunches to work and school so if they like them they should be a keeper.
The recipe loos simple enough that I can also add our own touches to it.

These sound so good, ok what if you wanted to vary the recipe? Like add p-nut butter & or nuts etc, etc how would you alter the recipe or would you have to change the recipe?
