MY REVIEW

Great recipe! I like to change it up some or keep it as is :) Add coconut, replace seeds for nuts, use more peanut butter & honey with less corn syrup or add marshmallows! You can do just about anything with this recipe.

I made these for my family and we loved them. I didn't use the sunflower kernels I chopped up roasted almonds instead. I was wondering could you use honey instead of corn syrup.

I LOVE these bars. They are irresistable. They are sweet, chocolate, chewy and contain some healty things like wheat germ, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. I make them often.
