I made the energy bars last night, and used light agave as the sweetener. They are delicious, but very sweet. I didn't add any nuts, but I think sunflower seeds would go great. I put the following fillers in mine: Oats, Kellogs Crunchy Nut (flakes, not the oat version), mixed dried berries (cherries, cranberries, blueberries), and mini chocolate chips. I think I should have let the goo cool a bit more before pouring because it melted the chips, although now I have a chocolate version, which isn't bad.
1. Look for alternatives to "glue" that aren't quite so sweet
2. I think Rice Krispies would have been a really good cereal to use with this
3. Let the glue cool
Overall these are VERY easy to make and takes maybe 15-20 minutes from start to finish.
Thanks, Don. This recipe is a keeper!
