A chewy and tasty bar with a scattering of chocolate chips makes this a great snack. The chewiness comes from a combination of stewed apples and golden syrup.
I had to change my previous review because now I love these! I use 5 TBSP honey instead of corn syrup and I also add a few TBSP of ground Flaxseed. If you make these and they come out too crumbly, try adding more peanut butter. I don't use marshmallows, but add 1/2 cup toasted chopped almonds and 1 cup choc. chips. I make these so much that I had to start buying the ingredients in bulk at costco! I have a 14 lb bag of chocolate chips in my cupboard! - 20 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have tried every granola bar recipe on Allrecipes.com searching for a flexible, adaptable snack bar, that is enough like store-bought that my kids will eat them, but which is still better for them (sugar/bad fat-wise). THESE ARE A SUCCESS! I used mini-chocolate chips and chopped nuts in 1/2 the batch, and white chocolate chips, almonds, and dried cranberries in the other 1/2. I baked each seperately in a 11x7 pan and they turned out great--not too dry, chewy, and held together well. - 12 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I would like to thank you for this recipe. I have made many different versions of it. . . I have about 20 flavors so far and have tried several, I make a new one each week. I vary the ingredients considerably, but your recipe was the inspiration. I like the high protein in this bar. It sticks with you. - 02 Apr 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
