    Yum, I am going to make these this weekend. I've been looking for a cheaper alternative to those expensive bars from the store. Thanks!

    It would probably be really good with crunchy Peanut Butter also. That way you get some nuts in there.Also heat some extra choc up and drizzel on top before cutting.

    Great recipe. Will diffently try this one.

    Do you think these would work with instant oatmeal? We have some that needs to be used up?

    I don't normally eat oatmeal, so I don't know the difference between quick cooking and instant.

    Thanks.

    I made these yesterday and I just have to say THANK YOU. They are awesome! I made them minus the raisins and instead of chocolate chips I ground up left over Easter Candy and put that in.

    I personally think they would work with the instant oatmeal, especially if its plain.

    Question

    Are they chewy? DBF only likes the chewy granola bars, but he eats them often. I'd rather he eat something I know the ingredients to.

    I make these minus the raisins. My kids love them. I think I got the recipe a couple years ago from allrecipes. I've sent them to school and had people call for the recipe.

    Made these this morning and they are really good. I used small M&M's since I had some sitting around for awhile. Also didn't use the raisins because my kids don't care for them. They are a chewy granola bar.

    Thanks for the recipe.
