ISO sugar free granola bar recipes

Does anyone have any recipes for granola bars that can use splenda instead of sugar or a link to a site with recipes.
Here is a recipe I found and made today. It is pretty good!! It does not contain any sugar as it is sweetened with honey (which I used today) or fruit juice concentrate. Hope you enjoy. (You can substitute wheat flour or regular flour for the oat bran if you can not find it)
Almond Granola Bars - sugarfree
Yield: 16 Servings
1 1/2 c Rolled oats
1/4 c Oat bran
1/4 c Finely chopped almonds
1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
2 tb Vegetable oil plus
1 ts Vegetable oil
1/3 c Honey or Fruitjuice Concentrate
1/2 ts Vanilla extract
1/4 ts Almond extract
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and add to dry mixture. Mix until all ingredients are moistened.
Press mixture into a rectangular shape 7 inches wide and nine inches long. (Wet hands or use one hand and a damp spoon.)
Bake about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cut into 16 bars using a sharp knife. Separate bars slightly and return to oven for 3 to 5 minutes more. The browner the bottom of the bars, the crisper they will be when cool.
The edges will crumble slightly when cut - set aside for a snack. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
I had to "cut" the wet ingredients and the dry ones together. Also, I only had a square 8x8 inch pan. I pressed the mixture into the sprayed pan and left about an inch on one side that way I could move the pieces around so they were not touching after I cut them and before putting them back into the oven for a few more minutes.
