"Whole grain, seeds, nuts, and dry fruit...does it get better? Yes! They've got nut butter! This recipe is flexible. You can sub sweeteners (except don't use fake sweeteners); you can use whatever type of nuts or seeds you like. You can add candied ginger in place of dried fruit. Use raisins, currants, or dried chopped cherries - your choice. Makes 16 breakfast bars or 32 snack bars."

coconut oil, or as needed
unsweetened coconut flakes
This turned out tasty but crumbly, and wouldn't hold together as bars. The mixture in the pan was very thick and sticky, too thick to boil. When it began to scorch on the bottom of the pan (I had it over low heat), I removed it from the stove. The thickness of it made it very difficult to distribute evenly through the toasted oat mixture. When that was finally accomplished, I pressed it into the pan and let it cool. It crumbled apart when I tried to cut it into bars, so now I have a very tasty granola. Not exactly what I had hoped for. I may try this again with coconut oil instead of coconut butter, to see if that improves things. I give it 3 stars for flavor.
the flavor is good. Does not hold together as bars but is excellent as a granola topping for yogurt.
