I first tried these not-too-sweet bars at my mother-in-law's house. A marshmallow, honey and peanut butter mixture is delicious over crunchy cereal, oats and nuts. Be sure to let the bars cool a bit before pressing the mini chocolate chips on top or they'll melt.
In Regina, Saskatchewan, Angela Agarand’s family relies on this recipe for a quick snack any time of day. For an out-the-door “power breakfast,” however, enjoy the bars with low-fat yogurt, fresh fruit and juice.
"Our children are now grown and gone, but they always look forward to eating these chocolaty treats when they come back home to visit," relates Lavone Edgar from Nampa, Idaho. Her recipe makes a dozen wholesome bars-enough for the two of you to enjoy and share.

"My family prefers these chewy wholesome bars to store-bought granola bars," says Kim Finup of Kalamazoo, Michigan. "They combine two popular flavors—apple and peanut butter—and make a great grab-and-go breakfast or anytime snack."
