Homemade Granola Bars - Attempt #1

My friend and I are trying our hand at homemade granola bars. She
suggested we each make a batch for our party Tuesday, and I am all over
that! I will admit it was a challenge to find something without nuts
& honey but I managed. I made these this morning, and Sebastian
loves them! I think they are okay, especially for a first attempt. A
tad on the dry side - I'll try decreasing the cook time for the next
batch. But here it is, for those interested. It's a tweak of this recipe.

On-The-Go Breakfast Bars
Servings : 32   

3     cups  rolled oats
2     scoops  chocolate whey protein powder
2     teaspoons  baking powder
2     teaspoons  cinnamon
      pinch  salt
1/2   cup  applesauce
1     teaspoon  vanilla extract
2     large  eggs
1/2   cup  skim milk
1     cup  Cocoa Krispies
3     ounces  chocolate chips (I actually used a chocolate bar smashed up)
1     tablespoon  agave nectar

Mix together the dry ingredients (except cereal/chocolate). Combine the
wet in a different bowl, then add to dry. Mix it all up with the
cereal/chocolate, and press into an oiled baking sheet. Bake for 20
minutes at 350 degrees, then let cool and cut into bars.
