You can substitute 1:1 honey for corn syrup.

Personally, I used chopped prunes, chopped almonds, threw in some sunflower seeds (some chopped), dried pomegranate cranberries -- do what YOU like -- you can mix n' match.
I even put in some chopped pineapple and some coconut and a few chocolate chips.
I used soymilk rather than regular milk, but you could also use coconut milk or almond milk.
I also put in a scoop of protein powder.
So, yes, natural honey and/or agave nectar work well as a natural sweetener, too.
The possibilities are ENDLESS....but you can do it all without all that added sugar!!!
Yay! Have fun! :)))))

I swear, I think Pillsbury is trying to kill us!!! (LOL!)
I JUST made HEALTHY breakfast bars, and today clicked on this recipe in my inbox thinking it might (finally) be a HEALTHY recipe from Pillsbury! Nope! (sigh)
Those apricots look sooo good, though.
So folks, here's a HEALTHY and - - DEEEELICIOUS (yes - super yummy) alternative to the recipe here.
I just made it and everyone (kids to adults) love it.
Rather than sugary cereal, with even more sugar piled on and corn syrup (....more sugar!)....it's all natural yummy sweetness!

What do I substitute the corn syrup with?

This was my question exactly. Does look good except for the corn syrup.

Sounds great, but I was wondering if honey could be used in place of the corn syrup. Thanks for any advice! Raincloud
