Chewy, moist, awesome! I can't figure out why some had crunchy granola that fell apart, other than maybe they messed with the recipe too much? It may be tempting to eliminate some of the brown sugar, but, brown sugar does indeed add a lot of moisture. That being said, I may a few changes, in order to use all natural ingredients, that still lead to wonderful, moist granola bars.
I used Agave Nectar in place of the corn syrup, added 1 T of ground flax seed, used Ghee butter (natural butter found in the baking aisle at a store like Whole Foods that is a bit healthier than regular butter), and substituted almond butter for the peanut butter (more vitamins in almond butter). I skipped the sunflower kernels, sesame seeds and chocolate chips (recipe is plenty sweet without) and added dried cherries, chopped dried apricots and salted almonds - it was absolutely wonderful! Everyone who tried this loved it and many asked for my recipe.
