Reviews for Granola Blondies
"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"
"Question: How far ahead can these be made and how well do they keep? I 'm looking forward to making these for a relative with diabetes ."
"I have made these for years, ever since I first saw the recipe in taste of home, except I found them way too sweet, so I cut the brown sugar back to just 3/4 c and use cranberries for their tartness instead of cherries and they are to die for."
