Good Starter Recipe

Our family has decided to eat more health conscious. So I sub an egg replaced (Ener G) for the eggs (why do you need eggs in granola?), used 1/4 cup Agave Nectar for the brown sugar & 1 Tbs. applesauce for the oil. Also used Hazelnut flour instead of the all purpose. Turned out fantastic! So much healthier too!

Gives proportional amounts of ingredients
Delicious but definitely cut the sugar

based on the reviews I cut the sugar to 1/3 cup and they were fine. I could not imagine a full cup of sugar in this recipe. Used various a mix of raisins and apricots and was very pleased with the results.

quick to make, easy to carry to work or elsewhere
Fantastic, will make again

This was so easy and soooo good. However, I did make a few adjustments. I left out the egg white (I was lazy to separate), did with rolled oats (again, too lazy to toast rhe oats), halved the sugar to 1/2 cup (it was still a bit sweet), put mixed spices instead of cinammon (I ran out cinammon yesterday), and put almonds instead of almonds. Result? REALLY GOOD.

Definitely gonna make it again, except with a few adjustments. I baked it for 30 minutes at 160 C - it become really dry and hard. Will try 25 minutes or less next time. I will increase the oats to 2 cups or lower the cranberries to 1/2 cup.

Anyway do make this ^^ YOU WILL WOW PEOPLE (;

Easy to make
Need to either add oat, or subtract sugar ...

They tasted good, but it was too much sugar for the amount of oats. Next time, I'll either double the oats or half the sugar. Probably double the oats. It also did not make anywhere near 16 bars for me. I got 8 bars out of this recipe as it's written here.


I have not made these, but rated it great because of the easy recipe. I have a question though, why egg (s)? I am allergic and would prefer not to use egg. Can I omit the egg altogether, or do I need to substitute with something else? This is the only recipe for granola bars I found that use egg!

you can always replace the

you can always replace the egg with some hydrated chia seeds. they make a good egg substitute.

I would go ahead and try them

I would go ahead and try them with a substitute if that works with your allergy. The other option might be swapping out the brown sugar for a liquid sugar (honey, perhaps). The egg is the binding base for these, so you can't just omit it.
