Pumpkin Pie flavored Granola Bars

Top Review by karen

The flavor is really good, but my oatmeal mixture didn't hold together very well and crumbled instead of turning out to be bars. I was probably a little short on my honey, maybe a tablespoon or 2, since I realized after I started that I didn't have a spare jar of honey. That was probably the difference since I followed the recipe exactly other than creating my own pumpkin pie spice, so make sure you use the full honey amount. This actually reminded me of a baked oatmeal breakfast recipe that I've made, so I've been eating it crumbled and warmed up with a little milk as breakfast instead of as dessert.
