Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Way too much sugar for me
It's low fat but high carbs and calories for a "snack" - plus the sugar content is high
That is very high calorie for something so small. And it has sugar AND honey in it... how is that not "packed with sugar!
I think there is too much sugar content in this for me to make it!
I use Organic brown sugar, Organic Honey & unsweetened apple sauce instead of apple juice. I used fresh fruit and dried them. Used Chopped walnut & pecans. They cam out really good.
Good, but a lot of sugars.
I agree, being a diabetic this item filled with sugar would send me backwards months.
Made this once, but too much sugar. It was a tasty bar though. Might try with splenda or soemthing similar.
I'd cut back on the sugar ... 1/3 cup sugar plus 2 TBS of honey? that's a lot!
I would try to make these using nut flour instead of oats and use a couple of dates for binding instead of the brown sugar and honey. Also, I don't use flax in baking because it destroys the healthy oils.
sounds like there is too much sugar
Not a low sugar recipe! I tried it with Splenda.. it was okay!
Lots of sugar
Can adapt this recipe for less sugar.
This is a candy bar in disguise. I am proud of all the comments that recognize this as unhealthy, loaded with sugars. Dried fruit is candy made from fruit. Oats are starch turns to sugar in a heartbeat. Honey becomes lipids in the liver. Flax meal is healthy when ground from seed.
Not loaded with sugar? 4 sources of sugar in this recipe - dried fruit (many dried fruits are coated with sugar), brown sugar, apple juice & honey are all sugar. This recipe has about as much sugar as a candy bar. Flax seeds don't offer any benefit unless they're ground.
170 Cals, 12 gr sugar, makes 12--who's going to eat these? Definitely not a healthy snack.
This recipe sounds great; but I am hypog. and know there is sugar in this recipe.
Sugar is way to high. I gave up eating all healthy snack bars and I lost an additiona 6 lbs. I'm hoping to find a "healthy bar" recipe with 5 or less grams of sugar. I found Dixie Carb Counters on, so far their muffin mix is in line with what I am looking for- low carb, low sugar.
This recipe is loaded with sugar and fat. I would not call it a good substitute at all. There are many bars that you can purchase that are healthier than this one. About 75 calories of the total 170 are from fat - more than the recommended 20 - 30 % from the American Heart Association.
Maybe using a Splenda brown sugar mix will help make it lower in sugar. I really want to try this.
If you check a regular granola bar by Nature Valley, say, the calories are 170 to 190. so this recipe isn't that bad!
Keep USA posted on lower sugar modifications!
I agree with Poindextra. 15 grams of sugar is fairly significant. I also agree that some experimentation may yield a less sweet bar that I would want.
At 15 grams of sugar per serving, I think the "not loaded with sugar" label is misleading. Brown Sugar, honey, and apple juice all supply sugar to this recipe. It does sound yummy, though - I'd want to experiment to truly make this a low sugar recipe.
