I experimented with a few different batches of granola bars, altering the ingredients each time to my liking. I finally decided on my favorite which is the recipe below. I just loved their chewy texture. In grammar school my mom would pack me a granola bar that was so dry I’d nearly break my teeth. Perhaps I made my granola bars extra chewy with those jaw-breakers in mind. If you don’t want them as chewy, add a little less maple syrup and coconut and bake for several minutes more.
