Just made these and they are lovely! a little sweet for me and next time I might leave the cinnamon out, I just wish I could see how to save this in my online binder! and can't find no guidelines to help, I have tried 'bookmark and share' but it doesnt seem to work.

I finally made these the other day but after peoples comments about the mixture being crumbly I decided to omit the honey, sugar and butter and instead used a small can of sweetened lite condensed milk. I also used half oats, half rice bubbles - The result was much lower in fat and sugar, chewy, crunchy, sticky and delicious! (They needed to bake a little bit longer and in a slower oven, but it was well worth it!) Would definitely recommend.

I haven't tried to make these yet but notice a few people mention their bars fall apart a little. One reason could be that you aren't packing the mixture densely enough into the tin. I find with all the granola bars I make its better to really squash it in. Either that or it could be to do with the oats you are using. The recipe states 'porridge oats', but if you are using wholegrain rolled oats rather than the oaties type the oats wont bind quite as well. Will give these a go and let you know how they pan out for me. :-)

Gorgeous - I varied ingredients quite a bit as fruit and nuts that needed using up. They were very tasty, good texture and kept for ages in a tin - love them!

Very tasty! I just happened to have a bag of muesli with fruit and nuts, so used that and added some frozen berries and raisins. The only problem is that my bars don't seem to hold together very well. Does anyone have any sneaky tips? I don't know whether adding the frozen berries was a bad idea?

I've also just made these with desicated coconut, pumpkin seeds, two bananas and then left out the sunflower seeds and cinnamon. The coconut REALLY made it. lovely.
