found this recipe about a year and a half ago on this web site. my kids actually prefer this over the store bought ones, and have even had their friends beg the kids to bring in some for them.
i love this recipe although i tweaked it a little bit. i make these all the time!
this recipe is very good. my whole family loved them. i can’t keep them in the house.
they are so easy to make and soooo good. thank you!!!!!!!
made these yesterday…they’re delicious!
i added dry powdered milk, a bit of wheat germ, flax seed, and a touch of shredded coconut.
next time i make these, i’m going to use toasted slivered almonds and some dried fruit.
i will make these today for my kids before they get home from school.this will make a good snack and will hold them off until dinner.it also healthly thats always a plus.
i liked the taste of these but i must have done something wrong because they fell apart when i took them out of the pan. any suggestions?
I usually bake them a little less time…I think it depends on the oven. I know my gas oven baked them differently than my electric oven does.
these were awesome, the first time i made them, i was a little short on food and made them with dried prunes and some chopped up pecans. they were gone the same day. we made another batch today substituting the margarine for peanut butter and added some chopped peanuts.
this batch mixed a little dry, but added some water and they came out just as good.
Thank you for the list of other ingredients that you have put in them! I just went to the grocery store and forgot to pick up chocolate chips…I’ll try the peanut butter and pecans! 🙂
Wondering though, how much water did you add to the mix?
Thanks again! 🙂
does anyone know how long these will keep if i wrap them in parchment paper and plastic wrap?
made these today and they are great…. i used pb chips and raisins yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
great recipe for quality ingredients let to kids help mix up for more willingness to try new things
this recipe really looks pretty easy. does anyone know if you can freeze these?
I make these quiet often. Tonight I added a tablespoon of cinnamon and an extra half stick of butter. It was more cake like since I melted the butter instead of softened….dang microwave.
🙂 Really made for a great granola bar. However, my kids think these are cookies and they will be gone by Monday.
