    These are sooo good. Does anyone have a round about estimate of how much these cost a batch? I don't remember how much the corn syrup was. Thanks!

    I've made these for a long time and they are very good. I leave out the raisins. i've also dumped in bits of sunflower seeds or coconut that wasn't enough to make anything else out of. Waste not and all.

    Just doing this off the top of my head.

    Rice crispies $1.79 box at aldi. so I will say .50 for that
    Oatmeal $1. for small generic at dollar store. .50 for that
    Raisins are $1 a box at walgreens for about 2 cups .25 for that
    Brown sugar $1 generic 2 lb. bag .10 for that
    Corn syrup just a guess $2.50 for a 32 oz size so .10 for that
    Peanut butter $1 for generic .20 for that
    Vanilla .02
    choc. chips $1. for generic .25

    So roughly $1.47 per pan
    I estimated high due to the rising prices of everything. But not a bad price for a pan of granola compared to over $2 for six in a box.

    I love all the substitutions that you are posting. I think I may have to try the Honey Nut Cheerios...That sound pretty good.

    I made these and they were quite good however I really was not impressed with the rice crispies in it. I am going to try another cereal and see how it goes. It just reminded me too much of those rice crispy squares that you make with marshmallows.

    I had a recipe similar to this several years ago that called for Special K cereal -- and no oatmeal -- and those were really good.
