From the nutritional stand point, I substituted Spelt flour for the all-purpose and cut the honey in half. The fat is "good fat" coming from nuts and canola oil (mostly monunsat fats). If you eat it for a breakfast meal, you just had a pretty well balanced meal. Most of us don't get enough "good fat".
Apricot-Walnut Cereal Bars
Crisp and chewy, this bar is a good-for-you alternative to store-bought cereal bars. The secret ingredient, silken tofu, will give your day a protein-packed start. The recipe also works with other fruit-and-nut combinations.

Way too many calories and not near enough fiber. I would love to find a recipe for a 100 calorie bar with 9-10 grams of fiber.
I'm a college student and I asked my mom to make these for me the weekend she was coming to visit. They're very good and make for a light, quick breakfast on my way out the door. I move one straight from the freezer to the microwave for a minute or so on a lower power level and I'm good to go. I think I would like to have more of the apricots and walnuts though.

To the comment re leaving them out because of tofu--they are baked now so there is no danger of going bad. The tofu has been COOKED.
I think almond flour should work. That would reduce the carbs, too, and add more nutty flavor.
