Fantastic recipe will definitely make over and over again.

I made these yesterday and absolutely love them. They are really easy to make. They worked out nice and crunchy too, which is good as I don't really like chewy ones. I added extra nuts (hazelnuts, almonds and brazils) as I didn't have enough seeds in the cupboard. I'll be trying them with less butter next time to make them more healthy.

Success! I swapped the 100g of dried fruit for 100g of dates, chopped them up and melted them in a pan with a bit of water, to make a paste. I added this to the final mixture and it has made them nice and moist. So tasty, so moreish, so going to have eaten them all before I know it!

The first time I made these gorgeous granola bars they tasted divine but fell apart and looked more like a cereal topping. I wanted to try the recipe again, this time determined to create bars not crumbs. With all the mixture combined, I added a splash of water to try and bind the ingredients a bit better. It worked!! It was still crumbly while cutting it, but not as messy as the previous attempt. Next time I will add even more water in the hope of zero crumbly bits falling off.

An addition to my previous comment; feedback from my mountaineer friend is that the bars are extremely tasty, but a little crumbly. So, I am going to try adding some dates, and melt them in to the butter etc, before adding the oat mixture. I'll keep you informed!

Reduced the walnuts and added some almonds instead. I haven't tested them yet, but they smell delicious! I think the fact that the seeds, oats and nuts are toasted first, it must add to the nutty flavour. I've made these for a friend who's off on a mountaineering trip, I'm sure they'll keep him well fuelled-up!

I was disappointed with the result as found them very hard and crumbly, but sprinkled them on to some yoghurt and will use the rest on an apple crumble. I think I wud rather a more chewy consistency.

'These are delicious and have a great flavour but make sure you pack the mix down before baking' Everyone should try these.

I used pumpkin seeds and dates and only cooked for 20 mins. Mine are also a bit crumbly around the edges where I did not press it down firmly enough. I used plain oats instead of porridge oats which maybe why it is a bit crumbly? However totally yummy :-)

These are gorgeous. I'm constantly making them as they get eaten so quickly. Using good quality oats makes a difference, and I agree that varying the fruit and nuts makes some lovely combinations. In response to it breaking, you do have to cut it whilst still warm as it 'shatters' if you try and cut it when cold x
