    This recipe was delicious, though I changed it to be a bit healthier. I made all of the flour whole wheat, changed the shortening to margerine, and the dried cranberries to almonds. Plus I added 1/2 cup of chocolate chips too!  -  19 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Not really what I was going for, but they tasted pretty good. VERY sweet. It was more like granola cake than granola bars. I certainly don't like boiling the cranberries. sure it softens them up, but I think they lose a lot of flavor.  -  10 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My 13 year old daughter made this. A little bit crumbly, but very good. Will make again.  -  03 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
