  3. Oh these look so good and I love how easy they are to make! I have to try these. I buy them all the time, and would love to be able to make them at home!

  4. This looks good and it would be versatile enough you could really play with the ingredients. I am afraid I have never heard of rice syrup at all. I dont think I have ever even seen it before. I would imagine any dried fruit would workI dehydrate quite a bit and can see a lot of possibilities with this one!

  5. These bars look so delicious, and my kids would love to make these for me. We love Cranberries and they look delicious in this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  6. These are the best bars I think I’ve ever seen! I like making bars like this, and also have a weakness for white chocolate – perfect for fall, I’d like to try these bars!
