Keeping the quantities the same I substituted trail mix for the sultanas and crunchy nut cornflakes for the rice bubbles

I am never buying granola bars from the store again. I used only the quick cooking oats, added sunflower seeds and omitted the mixed nuts. I also added a pinch of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Baked these suckers for 10 minutes. And now I'm stuffing my face with one. Delicious.

my husband does not like nuts so i just omitted them altogether. substituted 1 cup raisins and 1/2 cup craisins (dried cranberries) and used 3 cups old-fashioned oats. i added about 1/2 brown sugar 1/2 tsp cinnamon mixed it up really good before adding the sweetened condensed milk. after pressing into the pan i drizzled some honey on the top along with a cinnamon sugar blend. ooohhhhhh it was so good. my husband and my 5 year old beg me to make this. making it at least twice a week.

AWESOME recipe! I make these for snacks for my kids (and hubby) to take to school. My daughter has a peanut allergy, and many store bought granola bars have peanut flour. So, I tried these, and we fell in love with the taste and simplicity! I make a double batch, individually cut and bag them, and stick them in the freezer. I do not use the parchment paper as a liner, but do use it to push them down firmly into the pan. I also have used a super-easy, no cook recipe on here for Sweetened Condensed milk, which works fabulously if you don't have it on hand. I only had old-fashioned oats, and did not miss the quick-cooking oats. I have tried all sorts of variations, such as chocolate chip and cinnamon raisin. Thanks for a fabulous recipe, that has become a staple in our house!

Terrific granola bar! To make it non-dairy, I used one can of coconut milk and 3 tbsp honey. I also used flax seed, millet and sunflower seeds in place of the mixed nuts. Good for the whole family!

Very easy - I used dried cherries (should have cut them up but didn't) and turned out great. I also used pecans in place of almonds. I'll be making this one again and again and again.

The condensed milk is a great way to keep the granola together. They turned out perfectly the first time. These are so easy to make, and fun to create bars to our own personal taste. I use dried apricots and sliced almonds for one batch and peanut butter chips for another. I took these to a group function and was given many compliments. My husband has requested we have them with breakfast every day. I omitted the condensed milk for one batch and tried using peanut butter and honey. I think it cooked too long because they were really crunchy. I wound up making granola with that batch...which is perfect in the yogurt I'm eating now!

This is one of the best granola bar recipes I have tried, and I have tried a lot. It doesn't fall apart when you cut it like so many do. Our school division is nut-free, so I subbed out all the nuts and seeds for a combination of coconut, Rice Krispies, chocolate chips and ground flax seed. I look forward to trying new combinations and adding nuts in over the summer holidays.

Love this recipe! It is so flexible. I have been making every week, and change up the nuts and dried fruit. One week I added coconut and macadamia nuts, another some cashews. It's a perfect, healthy snack!

This recipe is exactly what I was looking for - a simple way to cook ahead of time my usual morning oatmeal + dried fruit + nuts, without having to add a bunch of other ingredients. For me the parchment made a huge difference, without that the bars fell apart when I removed them from the pan. Also I like to mix up the dry ingredients before putting in the condensed milk, I find it easier to get an even distribution that way.
