These bars are packed with oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, and 1 cup of mixed dried fruits, of which I've used a mixture of prunes, cranberries and apricots. Great way to use up all the bits and pieces in the pantry! Recipe uses brown rice syrup, an ingredient I could not find (and did not even know about it before this!), so I have used corn syrup instead. It works out great. I have however sliced the bar to 16 pieces instead of 20, as I find that cutting into 20 pieces would make very small bars.
The bars hold together really well on the first day, but I find that on the second day, they are a little crumbly and gets much chewier. These bars tastes very nice but I am enjoying it all by myself, as my family is not in favour of granola bars, any granola bars for that matter! But I don't mind enjoying it all to myself. These bars make wonderful snack!
To see the other bakers take on these bars, do stop by Tuesdays With Dorie (TWD).
