"These bars are soooo good! I didn't have enough chocolate chips so I added some butterscotch chips, and I'm so glad I did. Next time I will do the same!"

"I used pancake syrup in place of honey and they turned out super! Best granola bars I've made and my 3 children rated them awesome! They are moist, chewy and full of of peanut butter flavor."

"A soft, chewy granola bar! Made this easy to prepare bar during the blizzard of 2016. Huge hit with snow shoveling family. Followed directions exactly, they do need to cool completely. As a volunteer food editor for Taste of Home, I enjoy recipes that can be quickly made with ingredients on hand."

"I made these as a post-workout snack/breakfast, and I added some pureed honey-roasted peanuts and chocolate & peanut butter protein powder. They are amazing, filling, and perfect to start off my day!"

"I used between 3/4 and 1 cup of natural p.b and used only 1/4 cup of chocolate chips, that being said, I am notorious for cutting sugar in recipes, as I did in this one, but please don't I think it's safe to say the (sugar+honey) called for in this recipe is right on for a lightly sweetened treat. baked 13 minutes @ 350 cooled before cutting, they're holding together great. Thanks"
