"A mix of taste good-for-you ingredients makes these chewy blond brownies impossible to pass up," says Janet Farley of Snellville, Georgia. "The granola adds crunch while dried fruit lends pleasing sweetness. I serve them to just about anybody who walks in our front door."

"My husband loves these bars and has declared them 'very good'. He thinks they are similar to oatmeal raisin cookies. I will definitely make them often"
