Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (163 votes)

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.

What would be a good replacement for the all-purpose flour? I want to use something gluten free. Maybe coconut flour?

I used craisins and almonds, 1/4 cup honey, and half the oil plus applesauce and these were great. Too much honey since the craisins are sweetened.

I reduced the honey by 1/3, replaced the egg with egg substitute and used only about 1 cup of the dried fruit, craisins and raisins. I also added 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 cup flaxseed meal. I keep mine refrigerated, with the tofu I don't think I would leave them out for 5 days. I will definitely make these again.

Made in a larger pan, cut bars smaller which worked well. The lemon was a bit overpowering. All in all, a wonderful alternative to commercial granola bars most of which have trans fats (less than a gram so they don't have to list it as an ingredient).
