I've been wanting to bake a granola bar from scratch. Homemade granola bars are wholesome. You can add ingredients you fancy and control the sweetness. No preservatives. All fresh and natural ingredients. I googled around and found this recipe by Ina Garten from Food Network (Ina Garten's Homemade Granola Bars). I liked it and set about to baking it with some modifications to the recipe.
