Default Looking for a granola bar recipe

Hi everyone,

I have to travel a couple of times coming up, and I don't want to get myself stuck in a situation where I end up eating plain salads for 3 meals a day (I'll be hanging out with my husbands friends, who are all 20-something boys, so I foresee a lot of pizza joints in my future). I'm thinking I can make myself some granola bars and pack them in my suitcase so at least I know my breakfast is taken care of, and I have emergency snacks.

I don't eat refined sugar or white flour, but any real food ingredients would be welcome.

Thanks in advance for any input!

This recipe contains brown sugar though. I tried it once and it was really nice, far superior than those available in the market. I think most of the Alton Brown's recipe are fool-proof.

This is my recipe:

http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recip...?recipe=428350

You can use whatever nut butter you like, and whatever combo of seeds / nut / fruit that you like.

It's definitely not low-cal, but it's full of healthy fats and fiber.



Plus, they're damn tasty!
