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

"Great flavour. Would definitely make again. A good tip: Grease your spoon or your hands if you are using them, when pressing the mix in the pan. It is very sticky and the margarine helps with this."

"My husband won't eat store bought anymore. I switch out Ing. sometimes and add Blueberries or cherries! He takes one to work every day so I like to mix it up. But stick with the basic recipe, Thanks for a great recipe."

"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."
