Cinnamon Granola Bars

I make these at least once a week for my husband, David. He takes one in his lunch every week and never gets tired of them. I love providing him with something so healthy to snack on that doesn't taste low-fat. —Jessica VanLaningham, Cockeysville, Maryland

    Love this recipe. My husband takes them in his golf bag for a snack.

    Easy to assemble and easy to bake. Tastes delicious! Plus it has some flaxseed in it so I feel like I’m eating healthy (wink). I make these very often, and the family enjoys them! Thanks for the recipe.

    Such a simple and tasty recipe. I used it as a base and then added peanut butter and chocolate chips. My son ate them up.

    This was nice, but I'm not sure it can be described as healthy seeing as it is full of sugar- sugar, honey and raisins. I'd give it five stars if it had been listed as a treat.

    I made these today and they turned out perfect. Kind of a chewy, soft granola bar similar to an oatmeal cookie. I can see how different dried fruits or chocolate chips would change it up nicely for variety. I'm sure I'll make these again.

    These were absolutely delicious! My husband said they were so much better than any you can buy. I will definitely be making these again! I put them into a 9x13 pan, and they ended making about 14 bars.

    This is a great snack and I added chocolate chips in place of the raisins.

    these turned out great, have made them several times.Have a question for Ladyslipper9When you finished making these, what did you call them? because it certainly was NOT the recipe for Cinnamon Granola Bars.

    I did quite a bit of add ons: walnuts, almonds, chocolate chips and coconut (all i had was sweetened from a previous recipe) and they were AMAZING ... a great after school snack for my 6yr old. I did have too cook them for about 25 minutes for them too harden but well worth the wait :-)
