I made two batches, one with whole oats the way it says to, and one with quick oats, cause that's what I had.

I like the quick ones better, the end result was softer, and since I am used to soft chewy granola bars, I think I vote soft.

I tried with honey and with half molasses, I like the half molasses better too.

And contrary to the recipe, I used craisins. (dried cranberries)

Friend of mine said she tried with some sort of brown rice syrup, sounded odd, but I bet it was interesting.

Now all I have to do is figure out how to make it more of a bar less of a crumbly mess so we gan eat it on the go more.

    hmmm good ideas! DF buys an 'oven baked fruit bar' which is basically a bit of soft biscuit type substance with a squirt of mashed 'fruit' inside. god knows what type of fruit it is! his argument is that it's $4.99 for 12 bars, and that it's cheap so I should be happy - but it's crap and i don't like him eating it! i was thinking that i should try making some, and you just reminded me! thanks!

    I second the request for the recipe! And I am going to have to try using the quick oats, too, because I prefer my granola soft and chewy... Thanks for the idea!
