    How can these be considered healthy if they have regular chocolate chips in them. If the recipe said sugar-free, I would agree.

    I made these. They are very dry. More like granola then a bar. But I will try them again. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter. I love the taste. And I’ve been looking for a oatmeal bar with lots of flavor. I think there yummy.

    This looks quite good and I can’t wait to try it. I would probably omit the dried fruit since they always add a bunch of sugar, but a little dark chocolate is good for you. Thanks!
