Came across a clip-out of this recipe in a stack of old papers. I'd always wanted to try making granola bars and just hadn't gotten around to it. Finally did and discovered this is an excellent base recipe - very versatile and accepting of minor tweaks. The bottom portion of my clip-out says Good Housekeeping October 2009. Not sure if there was an article name associated with it, just has a heading of "Granola Bars."
Here's what GH had to say about it:
"Bake a pan of these snacks and you'll never go back to the boxed stuff. They're super-easy and fun to make with kids. One brand uses almost as many nuts as we do, but a 12-bar box is $30! Our tray of 18 costs only $6 - and it's a whole lot tastier."
