The only way I have ever gotten any of these granola bar recipes to stick together is to melt the butter and sweetener together over low heat on the stovetop (and drastically reduce the sugar, I might add), mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, then pour the melted butter in and mix well. If you plan to add any chips, wait for the mixture to cool to room first. Then I push the mixture into the greased pan and bake. It will seem really greasy until it thoroughly cools. Then you will have a happy, held-together granola bar. :)



Great recipe. I made it exactly as written the first time. The kids loved them, but I thought they were a bit too sweet. I cut the sugar in half, and they were perfect. I've used Sucanat in place of sugar with great results. I do bake them a bit longer, maybe 20 minutes, to get them crisper. Overall, a keeper.



I thought my end result was a 5 but I'm not sure as written it is. I used way less brown sugar about 3/4 c and it was still really sweet. I didn't have wheat bran so i subbed 1/2 c flaxseed & 1/2 self-rising flour. My mixture would not stick together so I ended up adding an egg & a 1/2t soda. Added apricots & cranberries. I couldn't get it to spread out in a 9X13 so I used an 11X7 and cooked it about 20 minutes. End result is fantastic!
