I found this recipe on the Eat Better America site. If you have not checked it out, I definitely encourage it!
The recipe actually was a drop cookie recipe, but I decided to cut corners and bake a pan and will cut them into bars once they are cool.
This is a “cheater” recipe, with a mix, but definitely healthier than a lot of alternatives. With all that fiber from the bran cereal and only one tablespoon of oil, they are a nice treat that you don’t have to get a guilt trip over!
