1. As a fellow (almost-thin) vegan, I have a similar recipe, but it is no-bake. I will definitely have to try yours next week for my weekly granola-baking session. 🙂 Here is my version in case you want to give it a try:

    1 1/2 cups of puffed rice cereal (I prefer Nature's Path)
    1 1/2 cups of rolled oats
    1/2 cup of quick oats
    1/2 cup of nuts or seeds
    1/4 cup of flax seed (I've used whole seeds and
    1/3 cup of chilled mini choc chips or dried fruit
    1/2 cup of liquid sweetener of choice (I prefer grade B maple syrup – although it is pricey it has many health benefits)
    1/4 cup of brown sugar
    1/2 cup of nut or seed butter
    Pinch of salt
    3/4 tsp of vanilla or almond extract
    Cinnamon to taste (optional)

    Combine the dry ingredients. Heat the sweeteners in a saucepan, stirring occasionally. Add nut peanut/almond butter, salt and cinnamon stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Mix together, and add choc chips or dried fruit. Press into pan and let set for an hour.

    I don't really know what the calories are…hmmm?!?!?

    Tell me what you think if you try it. TTYL

  2. Do you happen to have the nutritional content of this? I'm keeping track of what I eat so that would help. If not, I will think, "ooh healthy I can eat unlimited quantities" And well, I learned the hard way that whether healthy or unhealthy, vegan, vegetarian, or full fledge carnivore…if I eat too much of anything and it finds a nice comfy spot around my waiste. (mind you, it is good to have a built in flotation device should I happen to fall into the ocean but otherwise, it isn't working for me.).


    Hope going vegan works for you. Just promise me that you will not forego shaving your legs and using deodorant. =)
