These are just ok. They are very crumbly. But, they are super easy, which is a plus.

Very easy an yummy. Quick oats stick together better.

These were delicious! I had to leave out the nuts because of food allergies and substituted chocolate chips instead. I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. My whole family loved them, and we will definitly be making them again and again!!

I'm not a big raisin fan. So I substituted with 1/2 cup m&m's, 1/2 cup cranberries, 1/4 almonds, and 1 1/2 Tbls unsalted sunflower seeds.

The Granola Bars were not sickening sweet as store bought, which was great. Did have a problem when cutting, they crumbled too easily. Needed to have a little more "glue" to hold them together. Do you have any suggestions? Followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely make them again since I ate almost the first batch myself.
