Drum circle and tear-gassing hippy jokes aside - I remember a sort of chewy granola snack (homemade) from when I was a kid - not the sticks-and-rocks-glued-together-with-burned-honey variety. Does anyone have a recipe that might fit that (chewy) description?

I like the look of this one - pretty simple and direct - I'll probably juggle the honey vs. brown sugar ratio though. thanks.

..I STILL haven't made any - I got the recipe and found out I needed more oatmeal (& walnuts). Maybe we can put it on the list for today.

Made some today - and of course I tweaked it (Can't help it) I deleted 1/4C of brown sugar and added 1/4 C of honey (a bee-keeping privilege for which I'm truly grateful) Then I used almonds instead of walnuts (wife hates walnuts sad .) added about 3/4C of raisins, about 1/8 - 1/4 t chili powder (a tiny dash of something out of place plays off of the other spices - like pinches of cinnamon in bbq recipes - try it - if it turns out great it makes a 'secret recipe' a conundrum for experienced tasters ) 1T cinnamon, 1/2t. nutmeg, & 1t. powdered ginger.  I think if I do it again I'll use a cookie sheet for less time and a more uniform toasting - I crumbled mine right out of the oven (coulda left it for bars, but I was already thinking breakfast cereal.)
anyway it's wicked delicious - thanks for pointing me to a recipe Allen.

What about adding something in for more fiber?  The current grocery store fiber rage seems to be powered by chicory root extract.  (Those blue flowering weeds alongside the road in the summer).  I wonder if you could add some of that into the bars to make them more fiber-licious?

I've made a couple batches and it's looking to me like granola is pretty doggone flexible. - I'm thinking coconut next time.  - Oatmeal is supposed to be pretty fiber-y, but I'm thinking if you want to turbofiber it you probably can.
