"This is a great recipe! We have a cousin with a peanut allergy that visits us and instead of trusting store bought brands, we make our own! We omitted the nuts (of course) and the raisins. This was a great thing for the kids to make... and eat! They loved them so much that we made two batches in one week! Our cousin with allergy has gone back home, but we are making them again today... and probably next week too! lol ;-)"

These are good! I didn't have rice cereal so I used crushed up Kashi Go Lean. I left out the 1/4 cup sugar also, and they were still plenty sweet. Next time I'll add peanut or other nut butter. My 6 year old likes them too.

I just made these tonight for the first time. I added about a 1/4 cup peanut butter. They are very chewy, and much cheaper/healthier than buying store bought bars. I wrapped them in plastic wrap, and put them in a plastic container. I am curious to know if these freeze/reheat well. I might give it a try.

These are great. I substitute dried cranberries and dried apples for the raisins and nuts, and granola cereal for the crispy rice cereal. It's difficult to keep my family off of them while they're still warm and gooey.

We omitted the cane sugar, raisins, and chocolate chips. For the nuts we used half roasted sunflower and half cinnamon almonds. Baked 30 mins. Not too sweet! Texture is slightly softer than Quaker Chewy, and feels a lot healthier.

These were very good. My daughter has a nut allergy so I added blueberries instead of nuts and it turned out great. My kids love this and don't want store bought anymore. Next time I will decrease the sugar to try to make healthier.

AMAZING! This is the best granola bar recipe I've found yet! I added molasses instead of honey, added almond extract instead of vanilla, added dried blueberries and raisins and omitted the chocolate chips.

I have bought my last store bought granola bar, thanks for this recipe! Made them exactly as directed and they turned out wonderful.

This time I rolled them into balls and baked at 350 for 10 mins. They are crispy outside and gooey inside. Perfect after school snacks and lunchbox treats!

Gooey, yummy! Yes, they are granola bar shaped cookies. Will use half the chocolate chips next time.
