THANKS! for the recipe!

DD1 has a severe peanut/nut allergy. What could I replace the 1-1/2 cups of nuts with?

It's won't be as crunchy, but anything like chocolate chips, dried fruit, etc. Anything that you might like in a granola type bar.

I have been looking for a nice easy recipe for Crunchy but haven't found a good one yet. I am looking for something like nature valley granola bars...

I've gotta question about this yummy recipe...

I haven't made it -yet- but i'm looking for ways to bump my protein intake, and other than nuts... what else could i add and/or substitute?

I was thinking of adding some flax seeds.
Also, someone else asked, are these soft/gooey or hard/crunchy?
Thanks!!!

These sound good......thanks for the recipe. I will be experimenting with this one.

Don't have a jelly roll pan so will use another type......should work okay, I hope.
