I loved this recipe! Very filling and satisfying. I added cranberries and sliced naked almonds (no salt/skins). I also added some cinnamon. This will be a regular recipe of mine! Love the natural ingredients. Submitted by:

GOOD, but incorrectly put into the recipe calculator(I think). When I went to mod. my add ins, I see that the recipe is calculated based on 1 cup of oats, but you have listed 2 1/4 cups of oats. Both the calories and CARBS are higher Submitted by:

I will not use Splenda Brown Sugar because it has more calories than brown sugar. Submitted by:

I used pumpkin instead of applesauce, added chocolate protein mix, pumpkin pie spice and then half raisins and half white chocolate as extras...topped with flax seed and cinnamon. It is a great anytime snack and everyone loves it. Submitted by:

So simple and so good! Instead of Splenda brown sugar I added about 12 drops of pure liquid Stevia and about a 1/4 cp. unsweetened shredded coconut to make up the bulk. I added golden raisins, sunflower seeds, and a bit of cinnamon too. Submitted by:

These were so good! I added slivered almonds and some mini choc chips (not a lot, less than 1/4 cup) because I had nothing else...I also added some vanilla protein powder, but otherwise made exactly as listed. Thanks for the great recipe! Submitted by:

The 2 1/4 c oats listed in the recipe would amount to 1/4 c per serving vs .11 c listed in the nutrition info, increasing the calories by about 40. Otherwise, the bars have good flavor. I added an egg to help them stay together better and be more moist. My favorite is pumpkin with cinnamon chips. Submitted by:

Yummy! Although NEXT TIME I will reduce the amount of Splenda Brown Sugar. I topped them with about 1/4 c Nestles semi-sweet mini morsels when they came out of the oven, and let them melt into great gooey-ness, then spreaded them around. Has anyone tried to make cookies out of this? Submitted by:

These went together easily and they are quick. I substituted 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar and 2 Tablespoons of Agave nectar for the Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. Turned out great; I'd like to find a granola bar recipe without flour, though. Submitted by:

I made these over a week ago and they've stayed good. I used plain brown sugar instead of Splenda, and added flax seeds, cinnamon and craisin. I think a little more cinnamon next time and maybe a tad more applesauce. Submitted by:

i used raisins and pecans as i doubled the recipe; i didn't have splenda brown sugar so used half as much sugar and it was plenty sweet likely due to the honey. will add wheat germ next time to get the magnesium! Submitted by:

So ... I didn't add sugar I 'replaced' Sugar with 2 tablespoons of Flavored Protein Powder to keep cals, and sugar down. I still think that the honey adds a lot of unessesary sugar .... i was going to try to change recipe to peanut Butter? What do you think? Submitted by:

I used Sugar Twin Brown sugar and it left an after taste. I will try this again with either Splenda or regular Brown Sugar. Submitted by:

I really like this recipe. I made the double batch and cut it into 2" squares for a quick snack. I used sunflowers, almonds and my homemade apple sauce (which already had sugar so I used less brown sugar). They are lovely! Submitted by:

I made this with apple butter because I didn't have applesauce or Splenda. I left out the honey to compensate for the extra sugar in the apple butter. It turned out okay--my kids liked them. Submitted by:

These were incredibly easy to make. They came out pretty soft, so I let them sit for quite awhile and then put them in the fridge. The bars are pretty big! I substituted real brown sugar for the splenda because its banned in Belgium, so it probably has some health risks. I will make these again! Submitted by:

Made a double batch of this recipe last night--for my 1 cup of addins, I used 1/4 c white chocolate, 1/4 c semi-sweet chocolate, and 1/2 c dried cranberries. I also used 1/4 c splenda and 1/4 c brown sugar as splenda gives me heart-burn quite often. AWESOME!!! Will definitely be making this again! Submitted by:

Pretty good generally - better than regular granola bars, and more filling, with fewer preservatives. I put in 15 grams of coconut (70 cals) and one tablespoon of chopped pecans. One point -in the nutrition count, you list 1/2 c of craisins as having 180 cals, but my box says it comes to over 400. Submitted by:
