      These are so good! I made a half-batch which fit perfectly into an 8x8" baking dish. I also substituted chopped pecans for the almonds. The finished granola bars are delicious and really hold together well ~ Thanks Sharon!

      YUM!! A great healthy treat for the lunch box. So much nicer than any pre packaged muesli bar. I used shredded coconut as that was all I had on hand other wise followed directions as written. Next time as per request from my daughter I'll reduce the apricots by half and add in choc chips. Thanks for sharing Sharon123!
