    ARG – I just got back from the store where I bought the ingredients to make these. BUT I forgot that I needed the old fashioned style rolled oats. All I have are the quick cook type. Would these work??

  2. Ruthmarie says:

    I’ve tried several granola bar recipes and the idea of this chewy version is very appealing, better survival in a purse … I may replace some of the honey with apple juice concentrate. If it helps, the chewiness will be thanks to the old-fashioned oats. The quick cooking oats will make a softer, more melt n’ the mouth cookie. Wait, there’s an idea …..

  3. sahmcolorado says:

    hmmmm…. well, I went ahead and made a batch with the quick cooking oats I had on hand. I don’t think my 2 and 4 yr old kids will be opposed to a melt in the mouth cookie for breakfast! LOL I may actually be better for my little guy than the chewy version. So far every type of cereal bar I’ve tried has been rejected by my kids. Probably because they miss the fun of picking them out of the box and unwrapping them!

  4. sahmcolorado says:

    I felt obligated to test these tonight. MMMMMMmmmmmm…. yes, they are not super chewy with the instant oats, but very very good. The kids will put them to the real test in the morning!

  5. sahmcolorado says:

    These are now a staple in our house. I cut and wrap them individually and keep them in a basket where the kids can reach them. No more store bought bars for us!!

  6. M & M says:

    These are ABSOLUTELY delicious! Brought them for the teachers at school – and they are begging for more!

    I made these about a week ago and used mini chocolate chips and marshmallows , though I had to compensate and use some molasses because I didn’t have enough honey but it turned out pretty good 🙂 , I’m planning on making some more tomorrow using pecans and almonds and another with strawberries and blueberries :).
