Yep, dry granola. Didn't read the reviews until afterward and wish I had. I will try adding an egg and more coconut oil next time for sure.

After reading the reviews on this, I added two eggs and about a 1/2 cup of water to make the batter more smooth. It helped a lot but was still a little dry. Overall the bars tasted very good, but the recipe may need a little more tweaking.

Thanks to the OP for the submission and getting me rolling on this. I also found it to be quite dry so broke down and added 1/2c water when binding since there was an equal portion of (coconut) flour. In truth, I wish that it had been boiling water and I had added it to the dates soften them in advance. That being said, I will likely double the date portion as I would have preferred a 'wetter' bar.

I tried this recipe and got granola also, so I looked up some other recipes and then added some more liquid to this recipe. I added 1/4 cup peanut butter (almond butter would work), 1 egg, and changed the oil to 1/4 cup. They turned out great!

This recipe makes some really tasty granola (not a bar, but granola)! I followed the recipe as directed except I used figs and instead of raisins, and used 2 cups pecans and 1 cup of walnuts instead of the other way around. I did add 1/4 cup almond butter before putting it in the oven when I realized that it wouldn't hold together in a bar and was going to be more like granola to see if that would help bind the ingredients together, but it still turned out to be a granola that had to be eaten with a spoon. Did an ingredient get left out, or a quantity get entered wrong? I hope the person that posted this recipe comments, because otherwise I loved it and even the skeptics kept going back for second and third helpings, but I really wanted a bar that would be easy to take along.
