Just leave it out.

Add any nuts and seeds you like. Add rolled oats, rolled buckwheat, rolled wheat, whatever, in a proportion that you like.

I thought it might be needed for "stickiness" but I guess the honey would do that?

If you are just making granola, you don't need it for stickiness.

If you are making granola bars, you might need it. I have made lots of granola, but never made granola bars. If it is needed for the stickiness, you could use a different kind of nut butter (almond, cashew, hazelnut - whatever you can find and you like) or probably even tahini.

Question

Hi, I would LOVE to make a version of these, but like the majority of us, cannot afford to waist presious ingredients! Below is what was suggested...
1/2 c. honey
3/4 c. peanut butter
3 c. granola or muesli
1/2 c. chopped nuts
1/3 c. dried apricots or raisins
1/4 c. toasted sunflower seeds
1/4 c. coconut
1/4 c. wheat germ
1/4 c. toasted sesame seed

Do you all think that THESE substitutions would work??? Does it look like they would all hold together in a bar situation? Thanks for your ideas and suggestions!

1/4 c. honey
1/4 c. agave nector
3/4 c. coconut butter
1 c. toasted rolled oats
2 c. puffed rice
1/4 c. toasted coconut
1/4 c. mini dark organic choc. chips
1/3 c. shelled hemp seed
1/4 c. wheat bran

I was going to suggest to make your own granola first and then make the bars. That is what I used to do when I was a student and didn't have much money--I'd steal the ingredients from my mother's pantry when I visited. Maybe she didn't consider it stealing, I just took stuff home that I could eat <g>. I have been meaning to make granola with the maple syrup we evaporated this past spring, but I have so many other things on my plate, I haven't gotten around to making granola or granola bars!
