Would these hold together without the honey?
I’m not sure Grizzly Bear Mom. It might work because of the peanut butter. You may have to add a little extra peanut butter but I am not sure.
I would think so because of the peanut butter, I going to make them and add extra peanut butter
These look really good, and they might be a good homemade substitute for granola bars. Thanks.

After thinking about it, I realized, I live alone. I’d be the only one eating them. I’ll make some and be careful not to slop them on the rug.
I am going to make these. I am substituting dried cherries for the chocolate chips. Let you know what I think.
These look good but I have no idea of where to find flaxseed and nothing to grind it with. What can be substituted for flax seed?
You can just leave it out.
Sandra you don’t need to use flax seed in this recipe. I never do. You can pretty much add or take away what you use in these. I do try to add a little extra if something else that I do like if I take something away.
You can pretty much get flaxseed in any grocery store nowadays – look for Bob’s Red Mill brand – or in stores like Whole Foods, or in health food stores. Comes whole and already ground. The whole seeds don’t do a lot for you. You need to grind them in order to get the nutrition out. I would think wheat germ would also taste good in this recipe, and if one didn’t want to do chocolate, you could substitute it some raisins or dried cranberries, and cinnamon. I think the flax and/or wheat germ would help take the stickiness out of the pb and honey a little bit.
Is this recipe in the 20th anniversary edition of your cookbook? Which I love, by the way. I’m not finding it.
No Susie it isn’t in there.
