A Household Favorite
My husband has become spoiled, and loves these so much he requests I make them every week for his breakfast.
I have subbed all kinds of dried berries and nuts, but my favorite combo is half raisins half dried cranberries. I've also made them with a few semi-sweet chocolate chips scattered on the bottom of the dish before I press in the granola mix.
I tried adding the extra tablespoon of butter, which helps them stick together better. I agree with the previous poster, that you REALLY have to press very hard--really mash everything together--when putting it in your dish. The harder you press, the more they stick together. Let them cool in the refrigerator for at least two hours before cutting. If you store them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator, they also stay better together.
I've passed this recipe on the several other people, and they all love it.
