This recipe is from my daughter's Home Ec class. She brought a sample home after they made them. They are nice and soft, a little chewy, and very tasty. I would think you should be able to change it up to suit your family. Try craisins with white chocolate chips, nuts, raisins, other dried fruits. Don't add too much or your granola bars will not have enough "glue" to hold together! They will stay soft for a few days if well wrapped.
