These bars are easy to make for a fast breakfast or a snack. Just the right amount of moisture. The kids loved these.

Pretty good! Perfect for school lunches. ( I don't find these bars to be dry at all.)

I know it was healthy to begin with but i wanted to cut the oil out and change it up. i used turbinado sugar in place of the regular sugar,1 medium banana in place of the oil,amber agave syrup in place of maple syrup,whole wheat flour instead of white and 1/3 cup dried cranberries instead of raisins..it turned out AWESOME and i will definately make it again!
