Substitution Notes:

I’ve not tried these bars with another flour in place of the oat flour, but I’d love to know the results if anyone wants to experiment (especially if someone wants to try coconut flour!). Same goes if you want to experiment with a different cereal in place of the rice crispies or use quick oats.

I also haven’t tried replacing the oil with applesauce or nut butter, and I can’t predict the results if you make one of these substitutions. But as always, feel free to experiment.

Some commenters have reported success with maple syrup :). If anyone wants to try the bars with date paste or brown rice syrup as the sweetener, please report back with the results.

All other substitutions: I can only vouch for the results of the bars if you make them exactly according to the recipe, as this is the only way I’ve tried them. I can’t give out any other substitution ideas or tell you if a certain substitution will work. The only way to know is to try (and to not be upset if the trial yields less-than-stellar results!).
