Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Love them! I use a high fiber, high protein grain instead of Grape Nuts. I don't expect this to be low-carb. They must COOL COMPLETELY to avoid crumbling so we refridgerate them after cooling on stove 15 mins. 1 bar w. a serving of yogurt keeps me full 'til lunch. That's some serious staying power.

Great recipe and easy to follow. Any snack under 200 calories is a winner. I don't see what the big deal is with the amount of carbs. The last time I checked, my body needed the carbs and this was mainly the type of carbs I should be consuming along with the fiber. Also, its easy to add more protein Submitted by:

I would omit the brown sugar and agave, just use a tad bit of honey which is not a trigger for me. I have been a sugar addict all my life and now I am sugar free for almost twenty months. Not about to sabotage myself now, but sounds great. I will try them without the added sugar. Thanks Submitted by:

A little carby, but that is pretty normal for granola. I made mine w/ dried cranberries & golden raisins. Taste is good, but didn't stay together very well. Would probably taste good on greek yogurt for a mini meal & that would help with the protein quota. Submitted by:

I made changes due to food allergies in my family, but it still turned out really well. I don't expect granola to be low in carbs, so I wasn't surprised or disappointed by the count or cals in this recipe. Easy to modify if folks want to up the protein or cut the carbs. Thanks for posting! Submitted by:

Seems a little high in calories for a snack and really high in carbohydrates. I would love to see a version closer to 100 Calories and 15-20g carbohydrates (without just making it 16 bars instead of 12). Submitted by:
