These granola bars are easy and delicious. They taste just like the store-bought chewy kind. My husband asks me to make these at least once a week!

I thought these turned out fairly good. If you like Quaker oatmeal packaged granola bars you will like these. I left out the dried fruit, but think they would have been good with raisins. I used an equivalent amount of extra rolled oats, for the steel cut, to avoid a trip to the store. It worked fine. I thought the half a cup of mini chocolate chips was a bit much, as these were plenty sweet already. I consider them more of a sweet then a health food. However, I feel that way about most all store bought granola bars also that, taste just like this. A hint for the chocolate chips is to freeze them to avoid melting if mixing in. Stir in the syrup well and let the mix cool down pretty well and add them in. I am not sure how they would have stuck to the top, as suggested. After the refridgerating, I worked hard to cut them into the 24 servings suggested and about 80% of them came out without much breaking, as they are very chewy and flexible. Although, not traditional as a square a different cut might hold better. I wasn't sure how to store these, as the directions didn't make any suggestions on that. I bagged them individually and stored in the fridge. It seemed to work good. I only wish now I had some kids to test these on.

Very tasty! I used 1cup cashews instead of the fruit and almonds. I find they fall apart a bit (maybe I didn't cook the sugar long enough) but the flavor is great. Also, the chocolate chips ended up melting all over because I tried packing them in when the mixture was still warm.
