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.

For an eggless version I just omitted the egg & didn't bake quite as long.Also made a batch using almonds and dried cherries. Good!

This is more economical than the Kashi bars I eat daily, but twice the calories, mostly from fat and less fiber. Will try again with a fat substitute.

Actually, 300 calories is very reasonable for breakfast! It is a meal after all. And only 1 gram of fat is from sat fat - that means the rest is actually good for you! Plus, there is more fiber and protein in this than some of the crap you buy in the grocery store (although Kashi has some fabulous nutrition stats). And its not loaded with preservatives! For a grab and go breakfast this sounds pretty good to me!

This bar is supposed to be your breakfast--a meal, NOT a snack. Look at the ingredients: the fat is mostly coming from good sources like the nuts and soy. Fat is not bad, esp. not good fat. You do actually need some of this in your diet. Overeating is what is bad. And I think a 300-calorie MEAL is pretty darn good.
