Reviews for Cinnamon Granola Bars
"I made these today and they turned out perfect. Kind of a chewy, soft granola bar similar to an oatmeal cookie. I can see how different dried fruits or chocolate chips would change it up nicely for variety. I'm sure I'll make these again."
"These were absolutely delicious! My husband said they were so much better than any you can buy. I will definitely be making these again! I put them into a 9x13 pan, and they ended making about 14 bars."
"This is a great snack and I added chocolate chips in place of the raisins."
"these turned out great, have made them several times.Have a question for Ladyslipper9When you finished making these, what did you call them? because it certainly was NOT the recipe for Cinnamon Granola Bars."
"I did quite a bit of add ons: walnuts, almonds, chocolate chips and coconut (all i had was sweetened from a previous recipe) and they were AMAZING ... a great after school snack for my 6yr old. I did have too cook them for about 25 minutes for them too harden but well worth the wait :-)"
"Made these yesterday. I had to substitute the butter for applesauce (husband and I have dairy allergy) and these were really good. I did have to bake them a bit longer because of the sub. Next time I make them, I'm subbing peanut butter for the butter and adding mini chocolate chips to send to my daughter in college. Thanks for the great recipe."
"Very good. I used 2T coconut oil 2T butter,11/2 oats, 1/2c coconut, 2T wheat germ for flax seed, dried cherries for raisins. I aiso used 1/2c whole wheat flour and 1/2c white flour and decreased brown sugar to 2/3c."
"Really yummy. Easy to prepare with my children. A big hit with my family. We added sunbutter and wheat germ in place of the flax seed. Definitely plan on making again."
"These are wonderful! To make them healthier I substituted 1 whole banana for the butter and applesauce for the egg. I also used whole wheat flour instead of white! Made them very moist."
