    Sounds great – but how many calories does low calories mean. :( It would help to know for all us that are counting them. Thanks Antonette

    the total for ingredients listed is about 2400, so it depends on how you cut them up. A 2×2 inch bar from an 8×8 pan would be about 150 calories.

    to reduce sugar in this recipe, you can skip the honey.
    to reduce carbs, you can reduce the portion of oats & shredded cereal and increase the portion of nuts.
    this will bring down the overall glycemic index of the granola bar, making it better for diabetics.

    Just made some. They were supposed to be for mid afternoon snacks but I can’t stop nibbling. Fantastic!

    Can you give me the nutritional content of the recipe please?
    I need total fat, carb, and protein. I realize that the portion size will effect the nutritional content of a serving, and I will calculate that after I have the information from you.
    Thanks from a person with Type I diabetes.
