A quick and yummy way to start the morning. You probably have all the ingredients right in your pantry. You can use your imagination to add other dried fruits, sesame seed, or other nuts, wheat germ, etc. Maple syrup or light corn syrup can work as sweetener substitutes for the honey.

I was reading this recipe and it sounds great,, but why are we preheating oven in step 1 if these are not baked?

The principle was great, but this way FAR too sweet for my family's taste. I use natural PB without any sweeteners, and I still think even leaving out the brown sugar entirely would be plenty sweet enough. I'll try it again without the sugar, but as written, I think it's only just 'ok'. Sorry. :-(

Great granola bar! I used light corn syrup instead of the honey and was very satisfied with the result. I also wanted to add chocolate chips to the bars but I didn't want them to melt when I stirred them into the hot mixture. Instead I mixed everything as the directions said and laid down a layer of granola, sprinkled chocolate chips on top, patted down another layer of granola, chips on top of that, and then a final layer of granola. makes a very thick and chewy granola bar, much better than those paper thin ones from other recipes.
