I happened to have most ingredients around from other efforts at similar energy treats, so I let my 5 year old help put these together. The only change in this batch was replacing all of the dried fruit with raisins. End result, they turned out great, and they're vanishing very quickly (my wife took some to a dance class where they were a hit as well).
My only issue was that the brown rice syrup sort of seeped to the bottom during baking, so it's sort of like ingredients sitting on top of the syrup. I'm not sure if pressing down more might provide a better distribution, or if it's just unavoidable since liquidy-sugary things get soft and seep when heated.
