I thought this recipe had a pretty good flavor, but found that the bars didn't seem to hold together too well. They are chewy, which is okay, but I was looking for a more crunchy, solid bar. I'm finding that with many of the granola bar recipes I've tried so far, so maybe I just haven't found the right one, or maybe the problem is the cook! :p
