Q: Do you have any recipe suggestions for a really healthy granola bar? I like making my own and sometimes I feel like there's too much butter or sugar. Should I throw in chia seeds or some other kind of super healthy ingredient?

Editor: Personally, I like to load up granola bars as much as I can with dried fruits. I've also had success using ground-up dates to hold the bars together in place of some or all of the sugar. Check out these recipes and their comment threads for more ideas:

Readers, how do you make your granola bars?
