There's sweetness from the honey, chewiness from the raisins, a hint of chocolate and cinnamon and bit of crunch. To save a few for later, wrap individual bars in plastic wrap and place in a resealable freezer bag. When you want a satisfying treat on short notice, just grab one a let it thaw for a few minutes.— Tasha Lehman, Williston, Vermont

"Excellent. I changed the raisins to cranberries and the walnuts to almonds. Next time I think I'll try pistachios. They were gone SO fast. If you have trouble with them being crumbly, just pat them down with a glass bottom the same way you do rice krispie treats before baking them. It worked great!"

"Mine tasted OK, but were more crumbly than chewy; maybe I should have soaked the raisins first."

"Loved the flavor and the lower calorie version of granola bars, but mine didn't stay in the bar form very well. I actually ended up putting chunks of the granola in a bowl and poured some almond milk over it and it was super yummy.

Also, adaly, you can find puffed wheat in the cereal section of most grocery stores. I just bought a bag for $1 at Walmart and I know Malt-o-Meal makes it in a bagged cereal too. It's usually very inexpensive."
