even though there are a lot of ingredients and ones that many people won't have in their home, these bars are worth the time and energy. they are tasty, filling and even my pickiest eater gobbled them up.
Almond-Honey Power Bar
From EatingWell: January/February 2010
Great for breakfast on the go! Golden roasted nuts, seeds and oats are enveloped by flavorful almond butter in these delectably chewy, no-fuss energy bars. Unrefined turbinado sugar adds a deep caramelly undertone. Feel free to use light brown sugar instead. Bars stored at room temperature will be softer than those that are refrigerated.

I made these yesterday, and the three of us devoured them. Must make more today. Reminds me of eating Cracker Jacks!!! But good for you. I used peanut butter instead of the almond butter. Really wonderful!!!!!
Wonderful recipe! I substituted Craisins for the raisins because raisins give my husband and son a stomach ache. They were a bit soft, so I might boil the almond butter/sugar mixture just a little longer. I've tried a lot of granola bar recipes and this one is by far the best in taste and nutrition!
Maybe granola bars just aren't my family's thing. We found this recipe too rich, even though I omitted the raw sugar and added only the honey. But, of all the granola bars we have ever tried, this was my favorite. Very toasty nutty taste. I may try the recipe listed in this comments blog. Maybe it won't taste so sweet and rich.
Loved this bar! Found clean up easy by using a waxed paper lining the 8" pan rather than oil spray. Then cut up the waxed paper for wrappers for the bars. To increase the protein, I used Kashi Go Lean in place of the puffed cereal.
