Ingredients
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey

Directions
Watch how to make this recipe

Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray a 7 by 10 3/4-inch nonstick baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. Lay a 6 by 18-inch piece of parchment paper in the pan, allowing the excess paper to hang over the sides. Spray the parchment paper lightly with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, using a hand beater, beat the egg white until frothy. Stir in the peanut butter, brown sugar, and honey. Add the melted butter, oats and almonds. Stir to combine, then add the chocolate chips.

Using a rubber spatula, spread mixture into the prepared baking pan, pressing lightly to form an even layer. Bake until the edge of the mixture begins to brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 1 hour. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares and serve.

*Cook's Note: To toast almonds, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven until lightly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes.

<span>I have made these bars twice now and will be making them again and again.  They are good and easy to make.  I bake them a little longer then the 15 minutes and they turn out good!!</span> item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these 4 batches straight! Giada never disappoints!!! and it filled me up whenever I got hungry. I love these. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was delicious, but not at all nutritious. You are making a giant, crumbly, peanut butter oatmeal cookie here folks. If you think you are making a nutritious breakfast walk away! Made as recipe states except used smooth peanut butter. This would be great over ice cream. Too sweet for breakfast. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great flavor....poor texture. Followed recipe exactly and it was crumbly. The flavor was delicious though. The bars do not travel well if you are making them for your kids school snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall I was very satisfied! I deducted a star due to having to tweak the recipe. I used only 1 T of butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and a little extra peanut butter and honey. I also used a pre-made granola that had raisins, almonds, sunflower seeds, and peanuts. I baked the bars for 25-30 minutes in a smaller sized pan so they came out a little thicker. I let them cool for 3 hours before cutting the bars into 16 pieces. There was minimal crumbling and the bars were super moist and chewy. Mine were a little nutty because of the granola mix I used, but the chocolate/peanut butter combination was a real treat! I will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were terrible. Soggy, fell apart and not very healthy. Everyone who gave it a good rating changed the recipe in many ways. If you have to do that how can you rate this recipe as written. Do not waste your ingredients. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. Thank you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were fantastic. After reading the reviews, I did make a few adjustments which made them healthier and I had no issues with crumbling whatsoever. I only used 3T of butter, only 1/4 C brown sugar, and used a little extra PB. I used the bottom of a glass to press the mixture into the bottom of the pan before baking. I baked the bars for 20 minutes instead of 15. I also made sure not to touch the bars until they had cooled for a little over an hour. When I cut them, they stayed together wonderfully and everyone enjoyed the bars greatly. I will definitely make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
can't wait to make this again it was so easy taste great &amp; healthy too item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for my family but added Raisins, dried apricots, cranberries and wheat germ everyone love it.. I tried to make another recipe but everyone asked for me to make this one again,, It's my families favorite.. So glad I found a simple granola recipe. We top pancakes with it and also eat it with yogurt. Delicious.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read all the ratings and comments and decided I really wanted to try these anyway. They came out fantastic. I used 2/3 of a stick of butter but I didnt melt it, I used room temperature butter and I also used fresh peanutbutter from our local Whole Foods store. I pressed them into a greased pan instead of on parchment paper and I pressed them firmly in pan with wax paper from the top. I baked in our range which is gas for 18 min. I let cool completely and cut them into heavenly bars that we enjoyed for days. I would say maybe not melting the butter or try using room temp butter because they were delicious and well worth time and effort! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Addictive!! I've made this recipe a couple dozen times already! I only use 1 tbsp of butter and it still tastes great. A stick of butter makes it more like oatmeal cookies, not granola bars. I also cut the brown sugar to 1/4 cup. You have to press it down hard while covered with wax paper or parchment paper, then remove it. I use the bottom of a measuring cup (1-cup size. Then bake it for 20 minutes maximum. Refrigerate until cool, cut into bars, and that seems to hold it together perfectly. There are some crumbs, but that's the best part of getting to cut them! I have gotten my whole family hooked on these bars and they make them weekly! We absolutely love them and can't stop eating them! Surprisingly, we haven't gained any weight. I don't feel guilty eating them after making those small changes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe was good. I followed other's suggestions and used just 1 T of butter. Partially for texture and partially because, let's face it, this is supposed to be a healthy snack and the is A LOT of butter for such a small recipe. Also I used raisins instead of almonds because my daughter has a tree nut allergy. She loved them and has had one for breakfast, lunch and dinner today! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Actually, I used this recipe as a base. I used coconut oil in place of butter, honey only, for sweetener, added unsweetened shredded coconut and pieces of pretzels for a salty element. I eyeball measured everything so it's very forgiving in that aspect. way better than store-bought and I know EXACTLY what's in it. I will cut back on the honey in the future and for me, it will be just perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kids love these. I cut down on the butter and add about 1/3 cup raisins and take out the almonds. Also, I cook it about 5 minutes longer than the directions called for, and I let the pan sit in the refridgerator for a couple of hours. They cut into bars perfectly after the time spent in the refridgerator. Absolutely delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very gooeey and sugary. WAY TOO Sugary &amp; buttery item not reviewed by moderator and published
they were delicious! the only problem, like others said, was that it didn't stay together,so i crumbled it up and used it as granola instead. the flavor though was fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These should not really be called granola "bars" since they do not stay in bar form. They are very soft and fall apart after a second of holding them. Very tasty though... better crumbled on to of yogurt or ice cream. These do not travel well and were difficult for my 3 year old to eat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe, it was super easy and tasted great! I only used about 1 tbs of butter after reading the reviews and it worked out perfectly. It was a bit crumbly so next time I make these bars I am going to add extra peanut butter to hold it together better. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made these granola bars exactly as the directions stated. Although they are still warm, I couldn't help sneaking a taste. They are very soft, so I can understand why people decided to reduce the amount of butter. Having said this, I believe these would make a wonderful dessert if you took a scoop of hot or warm granola mixture and topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream with either raspberry sauce or chocolate sauce. Yummm. I am sure once they are completely cooled, they will harden up a little, but not quite what I was expecting. Not bad, just not what I expected from a granola bar. I will make these again because they were simple and my two little boys enjoyed helping dump in the ingredients. Now that they are getting older (2 .5 and 3.5 I like to try in include them in our meal preparations. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These granola bars have a great flavor. The whole family loves them. They do tend to fall apart. I decreased the butter and increased the baking time a little bit after reading other reviews. Wrapping them individually and putting them in the freezer seemed to help them stay together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love recipes that are easy enough for my kids to make with just a little help. They like to do everything themselves with little help and these are it. My kids loved these. Had a hard time getting them in the oven. Will be making these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I only had to bake these bars for an additional five minutes and followed the recipe exactly. The taste was fine but they were on the crumbly side. No need to make these bars again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really enjoyed these, but replaced 1/2 cup of the oats with whole wheat pastry flour. Its not the traditional granola method but they held nicely, and the texture is great. Definitely will make them again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these last night with my 8 yo son we used walnuts (that's what my guys like and we added dried cherries and coconut. They are a huge hit, my son took some to grandpa's house with him this morning to share his work :- I did have to put them back in the oven for a bit longer, next time I'll leave them in the oven after I turn it off.... but otherwise perfect!!! These will be a constant around this house, Thanks Giada!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe without the additional nuts and I added shaved coconut. Very tasty. I'll be eating on these granola bars for awhile. Definitely agree that they need to be cooked a little longer, though I do like them to be a little chewy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These granola bars are fantastic. They are chewy, moist and have a great taste. The receipe is very easy to make and I followed it exactly. I cooked them as directed but the bars were not real formed. I think they need to cook a little more than 15 minutes. Otherwise, this is a winner and I will keep making these granola bars. They can not be beat. item not reviewed by moderator and published
While visiting our daughter and her family last week, she made these granola bars for dessert one evening. They are simply delicious!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved the flavor of these bars, but will definitely cut back on the butter like the other reviewers suggested. I would also suggest baking them longer than the 15 minutes. My bars came out really, really soft. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made these granola bars so many times! I love them! They are perfect for snacking, and for breakfast! I play soccer, and these bars give me the energy that I need to make it through practice. I love the flavor that the toasted almonds add to them, as well as the deep taste that the chocolate contributes~will definitely continue making! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this granola bar recipe. The only thing I would recommend is to cut down the butter. The recipe calls for a 1/2 cup, but I only added a 1/4 cup when I made it last time. It was better, but you could only add 1/8 of a cup and it would still be good! Thanks Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My 9-year-old daughter used this recipe for her 4-H cooking project judging. She did very well with it. We love this recipe. It is very easy and uses simple ingredients. Best of all, it is delicious and mostly good for you. With the exception of the stick of butter and choc chips the recipe is very nutritious. After reading the other reviews, I will cut the butter by half the next time I make these bars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are fantastic! I have made these a few times. Always great. Most recently I changed them up a bit to suit myself &amp; what I had on hand. Used a whole egg. Can't see a need to separate it or beat it with a mixer. A whisk is simpler. Used whole toasted almonds &amp; roasted peanuts, splenda brown sugar,creamy peanut butter &amp; added raisins. AWESOME! item not reviewed by moderator and published
They were so good and so easy!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these the next day, and my whole family loved them.. Very simple. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found these bars to be really yummy. They had such a great texture: the crunch from the nuts and oats and the creaminess of the peanut butter. Not only that, but the flavor of the peanut butter and almonds together was so good! Just be sure not to overcook/burn the almonds if you're toasting them yourself or else that powerful-burnt-nut flavor will be all you are able to taste of the bars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i made these as a gift for a friend's birthday. they came out great. click on my profile to see them on my blog! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super tasty and moist. I only had smooth peanut butter so I added trail mix w m&amp;ms, raisins and various nuts and it was delicious! Thanks Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought these peanut butter granola bars were great! However, I changed the recipe slightly..I used a reduced fat chunky peanut butter, cut the butter measurement in half, used sugar free honey and used dried cherries instead of the chocolate chips! I actually think I could even cut the butter measurement even lower next time. They still taste GREAT!! I would definitely recommend this tasty snack! Soo easy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were soooo delicious and easy to make!!! :D item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are delicious as is. For the people that said they fell apart, you have to wait for the whole hour before cutting them. I know it's hard to wait because they smell amazing, but if you wait the whole hour, they won't fall apart but will still be moist. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I agree. Cut down on some of the butter. otherwise they are very oily. Also, refrigerating overnight or at least 2 hours will help on the falling apart. I love these! item not reviewed by moderator and published
OK...so I will say that this a hands down delicious recipe. However, I faced all of the same problems with my granola bars not staying together. I even took one reviewer's advice and cooked my bars for 28 minutes (instead of the recommended 15). To me the main problem with this recipe is that there is way too much butter - which just leaves the granola gooey and oily. I will try this recipe again b/c it truly is delicious...but I will only use half of the butter it calls for. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good idea but it all fell apart even after waiting 2 hours for them to cool. Something is not right with the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a very easy and quick snack. I made them in mini-muffin tins and they are great bit size treats. I also added craisins - just because they were there. Great treat! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I absolutely love this recipe. I can't get enough of them. I find that if I put them in the refrigerator for a bit after they cool, they cut much better. This is one of those recipes that I wish I could hide and not share but unfortunately my family likes them also :-) Easy and very yummy and I find myself making them weekly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loves this receipe, but it's so crumbly. Any suggestions on how to make it more compact? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is wonderful, I had to modify a little because my son can't have eggs or peanut butter or dairy. So I used flax gel in place of egg and almond butter in place of peanut butter, and in place of butter I use coconut oil...it is terrific and addicting! I keep in refrigerator, otherwise it will fall apart maybe because of coconut oil..TOTALLY WORTH IT!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely delicious! Everyone loved them! I did make a few changes to the original recipe: first, I did not have the odd shaped pan size as suggested in the recipe so I used a 9x13 pan I had on hand; secondly, I added dried cranberries (Yum!); and finally, I did not refrigertate the granola after baking. I found that leaving the pan on the counter for a few hours did the trick. I also pressed the granola mixture really well into the pan before baking. I really beleive this helped keep the granola in tack when I took it out of the pan and cut it into pieces before serving. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe itself is VERY yummy, but even after cooking it for 30 minutes, it still didn't firm up. It tasted more like a dessert bar than a granola bar. I will be hunting for a good granola bar recipe, but will keep this one in mind for a yummy dessert idea. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Fell apart. They never hardened. Wasted my time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall this was a pretty good recipe. It was a little bit too sweet for me to call it a true granola bar, but it wasn't as sweet as a cookie, so it seemed to be a good mix. Like another review I read, I used a muffin tin to make these (regular sized, not mini), and it made 10 servings. I recommend this method because I didn't have any trouble with them crumbling like some of the others had trouble with. I also only used about 2/3 of a stick of butter, and I could've probably gotten by with only 1/2 stick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great ingredients but even though I baked these bars an extra 4 minutes, (they didn't look brown enough after 15), and after cooling 1 hour, they fell apart. I have put them in the fridge hoping they will hold together better when I attempt to cut them again. Not happy with this recipe and unless I adjust the ingredients, I won't make these again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were super easy and are delicious! My husband and 2 year old agree! My 2 year old had a lot of fun helping me make these, and we all think they are awesome! I looked at the reviews before making, and made a few adjustments accordingly. I added 1/4 cup of ground flax (because, why not try and make it a little healthier...and I had it on-hand so I went for it and I added about a 1/4 cup of dried cherries. We pressed the granola mixture into a mini-muffin tin, and it was just the right amount to make 24. By using the mini-muffin tin we have perfect portions and haven't had any of the crumbliness others have complained about. Not to mention, they are adorable as granola mini muffins! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These bars are pretty good. I used canola oil instead of butter because i don't like butter. I used less than 1/3cup of canola oil, 1/2 cup is DEF WAY TOOO MUCH!!! Next time i'll use 1/4 or less than that. THey were way too oily! I also added 1/3 cup flour along with the 2 cups oats. I didn't add the almonds because i'm not a fan of almonds and they hurt my teeth, so i figured i'd not add them and save some calories. I baked them in a 8x8 dish for about 18 min but they could have probably gone a little longer. Mine didn't fall apart like others sad their had. I really like them because they're not sugary tasting as some granola bars, they're kind of like a cookie but not so sugary or fattening i guess. I was gonna aid some flaxseed but i forget but next time i plan on doing that. Does anyone know how many calories these have? item not reviewed by moderator and published
good bars but it has to much butter and no flour to bind them together. i baked them for the time on the recipe and let them cool a good hour and they still fell apart. i think that you need the whole egg, less butter! and flour to bind them together and perhaps a little longer baking time. they taste great but they are all just a gooey peanut oat mess! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe!! Quick tip: Cook for 28 min. helps them become frimer. Also,for extra nutrition put some dried fruit in. Deliciosity!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe! But I used canola oil instead of butter and I added some ground flax and walnuts to add fiber. They are great for breakfast! item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a great recipe - we will never buy granola bars again! I do press the bars down very tightly before they go into the oven - no problem with them falling apart. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Agreeing with some previous posts, it felt like it needed to have some flour in the recipe to give a better consistency. It was really soft and falling apart. It was not like those granola bars I've known of. Didn't care for this that much. Almost like something is wrong with the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Although these tasted yummy, they completely fell apart- even after I cooled them for several hours. I feel like I wasted a lot of good ingredients as they ended up in the garbage. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious, my kids love them. For me, I followed the directions exactly, and they came out like chewy granola bars. The pan size is odd, but I have a le creuset baking dish that's 7x10, and it worked perfectly. item not reviewed by moderator and published
awsome! I used raisins instead,kids eat them for breakfast on the go! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These bars are very good. The only problem I had was that they fell apart fairly easily, otherwise loved them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These bars are amazing! I had no issues with them falling apart. I did leave them in the dish for a few hours before cutting them though. I've made a ton of granola bars and these are by far the tastiest! Thanks Giada! item not reviewed by moderator and published
You need to wait the full hour for them to cool, then you won't have as much problem with them crumbling, they crumble more when they are warm but much less when they are completely cooled. Mine came out perfectly following the recipe as written, cutting only after fully cooled and no longer warm at all. These are excellent. item not reviewed by moderator and published
they are delicious but i followed the recipe some what and they are crumbley and they fall apart before you can get them in your mouth i only used 1/4 c of chips because my husband doesnt really have a sweet tooth and i left out the almonds cause i didnt have them on hand. but i think the reveiw with an extra 1/4 cup of oats and the muffin tins and less butter would work better and i think ill use mini muffin tins other than that they are super delicious item not reviewed by moderator and published
This might possibly be the most delicious snack food ive ever tasted. Although i did make some changes. instead of peanut butter i used almond butter and added in some almonds. i also added less butter. BUT the thingf that makes these so perfect is the combination of the almond butter, honey, and brown sugar. Be careful though, THEY'RE ADDICTING!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Using some previous suggestions as well as my own additions/subtractions I have found the most amazing way to really make these bars absoutely delicious without having them crumble everywhere or be too buttery. Try the following: -Use Santa Cruz Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter and make the recipe the day you buy the peanut butter (if already opened and in the refigerator then set out to room temp before using) -Use only 5 tablespoons of butter, melted -Add an extra 1/4c of oats -Forget the awkward size pan that you can't find anywhere and drop 2 tablespoons of the oat mixture into a muffin pan lined with muffin cups (makes 12) -Top with sweetened shredded coconut before placing in the oven -Bake on the middle oven rack for 18 minutes or until the coconut is nice and toasted -When cool, put in the refigerator, covered. Perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was going on a drive with the family and made them and some tea and they were delicious. I would highly reccomend them. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this recipe several times now and my wife and daughter love it. I did read some of the comments before making this and did tame some of the butter and sometimes add raisins to the mix as well. Well enough talk, time to make another batch, it goes quickly at my house! item not reviewed by moderator and published
As with any new baking recipe I followed to a "T". I was baking with my 4 yr old grandson. They were messy but we loved the flavor. Wishing I had read the reviews prior to attempting this one. I will try again with modification. item not reviewed by moderator and published
They tasted really good. They really enjoyed the mini chocolate chips. They did fall apart a little though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These bars tasted great but I too discovered that they fall apart, even after chilling overnight. I think we will probably use them for a topping or mix in for ice cream! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had no problems with them falling apart. However, I thought they needed a pinch of salt and much less butter. They were too greasy. They tasted ok, but not as good as I had hoped. I love most of Giada's recipes but this one was not one of her better ones. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the comments before making these, I wanted to make them a little healthier. I decided to switch the recipe a bit. I used 1 egg white and a splash of egg substitute, I used agave instead of honey, I used creamy peanut butter and I didn't add butter in them at all. I put them in the fridge after and they stayed together really well. Great recipe, would make them again!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These bars are wonderful! The key for making them so they do not fall apart is to use 1 whole egg and 1 egg white - and make sure to press the mixture into the bottom of the pan using a spatula coated with cooking spray. Cook them 20 minutes and let them cool. If you live at a higher elevation, 1T of light corn syrup will help them stick together. If possible, wait until the next day to cut them. These can be made with many substitutions and I plan on trying them many different ways! Thanks for such a great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always read the reviews before trying any new recipe. After reading the reviews I took several suggestions and tweaked it a little..... I added a whole egg, 1/4 cup more of the oatmeal, 5 tbs. of butter, also added orange flavored craisins and baked for 30 minutes . After taking them out of the oven,when Ii attempted to cut them, I decided to put them in the refrigerator for over an hour. This was the trick for me. They cut beautifully and are so good. I will make them again... thanks to all for your suggestions and thank you Giada for the original recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have made these twice and they keep falling apart. Where the heck do you get this size pan!!! I have search the internet checked out all 50 pages of the "Shop Food Network" and still cannot find it anywhere. Why do they make stuff if you can't find the pan?? They are really tasty but it would be so much better if you could actually eat them as a bar, and not with a spoon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wish I would of read the reviews before making the bars. I had the exact same problem with them being too crumbly and and I also think the butter could be reduced. The taste is there and it is really good, however next time I make them I will make all the adjustments that people here have suggested. I used creamy all natural PB and combined different trail mixes that already included slivered almonds, semi sweet choco chips, raisins, cherries, cranberries, and peanuts, did a quick chop and added them all into the granola mix.... Mine were burnt on the edges and I cooked them at the exact time and temp that's stated on the recipe, did anyone else have that happen to them?? I didn't really mind it since I like extra cruch in my food :).. Good for the liver!, Anywho thanks too everyone for your suggestions! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these for an alternative breakfast for my husband to take to work. I baked them for 20 mins instead of 15min, because I didn't see any brown on the edges. I think I should baked them for even longer. I waited a whole hour for them to cool before cutting them and they fell apart right away. :( I think next time I'll try the muffin pan. They we a little too gooey... item not reviewed by moderator and published
I read the other reviews and followed their advice, less butter, added more oats. Turned out great, though still crumbly. Made a second time using chunky almond butter in place of peanut butter (with dark chocolate chips), stays together better and very tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We loved thess and will make them again, only complaint is they didn't stay together, they fell apart. So I will try adding a whole egg and refrigerate over night, if they will last that long...... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used pecans instead of almonds and smooth pb, still really good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What the heck is the pan size in this recipe? I have never heard anyone reference it before. Since everyone on here is saying these crumble, I used a whole egg instead of just egg white. I baked in an 8x8 inch pan for 20 minutes. Next time I would probably do a few minutes longer. Mine do not crumble! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
these were much sweeter than I thought they would be. They were great right out of the oven, but after that, they just didnt work for us. Wasnt a fan at all. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe with the recommendations of using less butter and 2 1/4 cups of oatmeal. Everyone said it was too crumbly, so I pressed the mixture into a muffin pan, just halfway up and they turned out great! Not crumbly! I also used regular, smooth peanut butter instead of chunky. Give it a try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had them crumble too. I made them for my husbands trip and they turned into crumble bars. I will try to put them in the frig over night and see if that helps. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were excellent, I am afraid I will keep snacking on them! They do fall apart and that is my only complaint but I did put them in the fridge and hope they stay better. Other then that they are wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this yesterday and thought they were really yummy. Next time, I think I will add more chocolate chips to give it a little more of a sweet flavor rather than such a strong peanut flavor. After reading the reviews saying that they were really crumbly and they fell apart, I stored them in my refrigerator overnight and packed it away in my lunch today. I thought they held up really well, as good as a store bought granola bar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
OK, these will turn out more crumbly then a normal granola bar, but they taste fantastic! I would add some raisins to make it better, but as is these taste wonderful. I eat a lot of granola bars during the week, and almost busting my teeth on rock hard bars isn't my favorite thing about eating them. So, I welcome these soft alternatives to my daily snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe for two reasons. I am very allergic to dairy (could replace butter) and my grandson does not do well with sugar. I replaced the butter with my non- dairy margarine and used agave syrup for the honey. I did use the small about of brown sugar though. I always use egg substitute and these turned out wonderful. I also used my non-dairy chocolate and just broke it into chunks. These turned out better than any I have tried. They really are good. Can't wait for my grandson to try them, I know he will love them! item not reviewed by moderator and published
they crumble and fall apart-I've tried adding more oats,more peanut butter-I am going to try adding another egg white the next time-I don't use chocolate chips I use butterscotch chips and they come out unspeakably good-I also added dried cranberries instead of the nuts--have an idea about using marmilade next time and see how that comes out-might have a new recipe! ;) julie item not reviewed by moderator and published

um...they were okay but I wont make them again. and the recipe doesnt even make alot. too strong of peanut butter flavor and they do fall apart even though i cut the butter i used in half. they were easy to make but next i may use less P. butter and add shredded cocnut. item not reviewed by moderator and published
