I have to revise my review. I originally made this recipe with oatmeal intead of Grape Nuts and really liked it. I have since made it with the Grape Nuts and also like it that way. One modification I have done is cut the sugar in half and used half honey in lieu of half the corn syrup. Comes out great either with oatmeal or Grape Nuts. Oatmeal version is softer, more like a traditional Power Bar; Grape Nuts is crunchier, more like a dessert, I think. Regardless of which way they're made, they're great!



I am a tweaker, I admit it. I tweaked these because all that grape nuts sounded a little boring. I used 1 cup of grape nuts, & enough chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds & chocolate chips to make up the other 1 cup. You have to mix quickly though, the syrup mixture hardens pretty fast. These were delish!



These are so good, however I reduce the amount of karo syrup and use mostly honey in its place. I also used turbinado (raw) sugar instead, and used half oats and half grapenuts. I sprinkled the top with chocolate chips. This is a filling and delicious snack bar, and so easy to make--better than power bars. I love this recipe. Thanks for sharing.
