"These hearty bars are great for breakfast on the go or to stash in or your desk at work," writes Maralyn Renner of Ferndale, California. "They freeze extremely well, so get baking and stock up!"

    Waaaaaay better then anything you buy in the store. So many flavor possibilities by changing the fruits, nuts, etc.

    molasses adds great flavor! A little more crumbly than I expected but so delicious.

    I doubled the recipe and used what ingredients I had on hand. I used walnuts instead of pecans, and raisins instead of dried blueberries. We don't do corn syrup and corn sugar, so I used locally 'grown' honey instead of corn syrup. The honey may have made them a little sweeter, so when I make them again, I'll use 1 1/2 teaspoons rather than 2. Even with all the changes, these were great!! We have a chicken farm, so we always have farm fresh eggs - and I like the idea of using wheat flour also!! Will do that next time.

    There are very tasty! I did change a few things, doubled the cinnamon and substituted the AP flour for whole wheat pastry flour. Next time I am doubling the recipe!
