Few modifications = success!

I have made these twice now. I used half the sugar based on other reviews. The second time, I actually cooked them in muffin tins (made 18) and used a lightly oiled piece of plastic wrap to compact the mixture before baking. 20 minutes for muffins was still a little too long in my oven, will do less next time. I also replaced the recommended dried fruit with half cherries and half blueberries. And, of course, I put a very light sprinkling of mini chocolate chips on top. I would also caution that if you go this route, LIBERALLY spray your muffin liners.

More bakery bar than granola bar

I've only made these bars once and went with the full amount of sugar, which could explain the outcome. Don't get me wrong-they are very tasty! But with the full amount of sugar they taste much more like a dessert bar than something you'd take along on a hike. Mine stayed together and cut beautifully-chewy but not crunchy. Going to give these another try with less sugar.

Wonderful granola bars

I have made these granola bars twice and they taste wonderful. I use a 1/4 of sugar(instead of the amount in the recipe) and also add a 1/4 cup of wheat germ for the extra protein and fibre. I have doubled this recipe and it works well in a 9 x 13 pan. I do not use the oil and plan to use only egg whites next time to cut down on the fat.

too much sugar

I used 1/4 a cup of agave nectar and 1/3 cup of brown sugar with pumpkin seeds and raisins- they were perfection.
