“These are versatile chewy granola bars. You can add or omit as your allergies dictate. I enjoy raisins and sesame seeds, with less chocolate chips. These are not overly sweet. I buy roasted almonds with no salt and chop them in the food processor. My cashews are usually roasted and salted. It can be made with raw nuts. You could use almond or soy butter if allergic to peanuts.”

So yummy! To make these a little healthier, I subbed agave nectar for the corn syrup and brown rice cereal instead of regular rice cereal... Will be making these again!



Delicious but be sure to carefully read the ingredients on the crispy rice cereal. "Malt" refers to barley malt and that means it is NOT gluten-free. Kellogs Rice Crispies are NOT gluten free. Rice Chex are. Beware if you are very sensitive or celiac.



Well, I didn't have any corn syrup so I had to improvise and it turned out amazing! I will make this again. Instead of corn syrup I used 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of aunt jemima syrup (haha). I used cappuccino chips because I just wanted a different flavour. Otherwise I did everything the same and YUM!! I also pressed it into a pan lined with wax paper to make them come out nicer. I also found that in order to get 36 bars you really have to cut these small (less than an inch to get 12 across the pan - not what the picture would suggest). Not really realistic for anyone to eat them that small but it doesn't really matter. But if you are making this for a group you might over estimate what you have that's all. Because I had used honey and syrup they came out a little soft but I think they are better that way anyway they don't even taste like a granola bar.
