    I used sugar free applesauce and two splenda and cranberries instead of pecans this cut the calories to equal 105 per bar. My family and i love them they are so good, my husband couldn't stop eating them. - 1/25/09

    Ok, I redid the recipe a tad and now add 2/3's the amount listed of applesauce and fill the remainder of the cup with more honey. They stick together perfectly without any other changes! My boyfriends won't go back to the boughten ones!! :) - 3/31/09

    Delicious and quick. Did not put in any brown sugar (too sweet). I turned off the oven, took them out and cut them up straight away. Then flipped them over and put them back in the turned off oven to "dry out" for 2 hours. Love the crunch and flavor. I also used cranberries instead of pecan - 7/24/09

    These are so good! I have made them twice now, I eat one almost every day. I can't seem to get mine to hold together very well though. - 6/15/09

    I plan to line my pan with parchment paper; they can lift right out and it would eliminate the need to grease. - 3/4/08

    PERFECT! I tried some other ones that were on here and they weren't good. These, I LOVE! I added craisins & dried cherries also. Sprinkled cinnamon on the top before I baked them also. DELISH! Can't wait for my 5 and 2yr old to try them tomorrow! - 5/31/08

    It looks like the brown sugar was omitted from the nutritional breakdown. This will increase the calorie value. - 8/26/11

    Mine didn't stick together at all. The flavor is good, but it's more like granola.... I can't figure out if I did something wrong - 8/6/10

    I like these - not too sweet, easy to make. I sprinkled them with a bit of cinnamon. Decided to explore recipes for granola bars since I discovered that the high-fiber bars I've been buying have that high density glucose syrup that we're supposed to avoid. - 3/8/08

    Mine came out like granola. They didn't stick together at all. I was really looking for a bar, hence the low rating. - 1/13/13

    I left out the coconut because I don't like it, but did everything else the same. I think they are not very good and lack flavor. Maybe I should have added dry fruit. They did not stick together very well and did not fill the whole pan, - 5/5/12

    Love this recipe, however I did find you needed to add more honey to keep them together. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon. My husband suggested next time I use molasses instead of extra honey. - 10/12/11

    I make these every week now, and have done a lot of variations. They're way better than buying granola bars! I do add more honey because they stick together much better that way. - 7/10/11

    I added about 2 extra tablespoons of honey to the batter to help it stick together and I left it in the oven for an extra half hour after turning off the oven. It's nice and crunchy, but not a wow. I think I'll like it with yogurt or with applesauce, but by itself, it's not very exciting. - 2/14/11

    It appears that the brown sugar is missing from the ingredients used to calculate the nutritional value. Is that right? - 11/3/10

    This is my favorite granola bar recipe! I have tried so many off this site. When they didn't work I tried to change them, but THIS recipe works great just as it is- I don't make changes! - 1/13/10

    I will definitely make them again. I followed someone else's suggestions and added more applesauce and honey. I too sprinkled cinnamon on top. Yummy - 1/4/10

    These are very good. They fit the bill for something to go with my yogurt for breakfast and even my 4 year old gobbles them up! Not very sweet at all, but nice satisfying chew to them. A keeper - 10/14/09

    My husband and son loved these. I replaced the honey with maple syrup and the flax seed with whey protein. (didn't have the others on hand) I also added choc chips as suggested earlier. These were very good. My changes increased the cal to 119 and dropped fat to 4.9.
    Thanks for sharing this one! - 5/17/08

    I put in some rasins, crasins, and some choc.chips. It turned out great and very filling. When the first come out they were very moist, so I cut them up and placed back in the cooling oven (overn turned off) and it helped dry them out a bit. Still AWSOME! - 5/4/08

    I made these this afternoon for my boys to have after school. They loved them. I didn't have coconut, so I used unsalted sunflower seeds instead. I had a little trouble getting them to hold together. Next time, I may removed them from the pan and bake a while spread out on a cookie sheet to dry. - 4/3/08
