    I love these! Yummy--I think I wanted some healthy baked goods! I added just a few raisins--craisins would be great, too. This is something you could enjoy tweaking, and it would be good, and different each time! - 3/29/08

    I'd substitute apple sauce for some of the butter, splenda for the honey, and I'd have a great snack for my diabetic father in law. He loves nutty, healthy stuff! - 3/26/08

    Not sure what happened but they didn't turn out well for me. Very bland, and didn't quite fill the jelly roll pan I used - If you make these, watch them closely and use a smaller pan? - 4/1/08

    We love this recipe and found that the sweetness is just right as is. I make them in a 9x9 pan so that they are thicker and adjust the size accordingly. Thank you for sharing! (I did add 1/2 tsp vanilla, but did not change anything else.) - 3/10/10

    I really like these. They are really good and taste healthy. Meaning they're not very sweet.

    I loved it and so did my hubby, who can't start the day without some kind of breakfast bar!

    He enjoyed the substitution of these for those processed sugary-sweet ones that cost $1.50 each! - 10/23/07

    These are so yummy! Not sure how small yours (30 servings?). Mine made 24 servings, which were still pretty small. Will definitely make them again, since I don't think they're going to last long. - 8/13/07

    These ended up in the compost. :( Peanuts might work better than walnuts? Raisins could be good. I likely won't try them again. - 3/30/10

    I used a cooked apple (peel, chop and microwave for 1 min on high), raisins (rinsed in warm water) and sliced almonds, but no coconut. In lieu of molasses I had no-sugar Syrup by ED Smith and fresh Ontario honey. Next time I would make it in a 9x9 pan instead and only bake it for 30 mins. - 1/25/10

    I just made these. I like them. I used the suggestion of pumpkin pie spice (3/4 tsp) and I used pecans instead of walnuts because that is what I had. Used a ruler to cut and it only makes 24 bars. You have to remember that these are granola bars not cookies and they taste healthy. Great snack! - 3/26/08

    I thought these were ok. They were a little on the bland side. My husband and kids didn't like them at all. - 3/4/08

    Made this mostly as is but with a few changes to try to add the "something missing" of other reviews. Doubled the honey to 1/2 C, added 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/4 C ground flaxseed, and an additional 1/2 C of oats. Left out coconut. It is good, but not great. - 2/13/08

    I'm looking forward to trying these. My 2 yr old has never had the store bought ones due to her dairy allergy , so I am hoping to sub her margarine for the butter and get her used to healthy snacks. - 3/26/08
