Okay, here's another recipe I found on the web and adapted for my personal use. If you don't like it, sorry, but I think it's absolutely FABULOUS. Of course, NOTHING is as good as my brownies..... (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) A few notes before you read my recipe:

I always use a little more cinnamon and nutmeg than the recipe calls for. Just sniff the batter and use your judgement (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) I have also found that it's WAY better to have these under-cooked than over-cooked. Let me know what you think!!!

CHEWY GRANOLA BARS

1 cup SF maple syrup
2/3 cup chunky natural peanut butter
2 2/3 cups old-fashioned/whole grain oats
1 cup WW flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 cups mixed dried fruit and nuts, chopped
(may substitute 1/4 cup soy protein powder for 1/4 cup of fruit and nuts)

Mix syrup and peanut butter until well blended (should look kind of fluffy). Stir in oats, flour, wheat germ, spices and fruit/nut mixture. If mixture is too dry, add water 1 tsp at a time. If mixture is too sticky, add oats 1 tsp at a time. Mixture should be slightly sticky but still spread easily in pan with greased fingers.

Press into a lightly greased 9-in. x 13-in. pan. Bake at 350 until barely browned. Do not overbake! Cut in pan while still warm and allow to cool completely. Remove with a greased spatula. Wrap individually in plastic wrap and store in a zip bag or airtight container. May be frozen.

Are we allowed to eat raisins? I was hoping to be able to eat the golden raisins due to bathroom troubles on this diet, but I looked at the box yesterday and found that there were 26 grams of sugar per serving (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/blink.gif) !!!

I wonder if other dried fruit is this way. I love dried apricots.
Just wondering

If I remember correctly, the book says that you can have dried fruit in moderation as long as there is no added sugar. The high sugar contents onthe label are probably from fructose (allowed) unless you are looking at sweetenedstuff (like cranberries). Just read the ingred. list to be sure there isn'tsugar added, and you should be fine.

Dried fruits ARE higher on the GI, but that's something I'm willing to live with because these are really yummy (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
