Granola bars

(photo from little birdie secrets)
Last night I made the best granola bars ever. I am always looking for snacks to send with Lee that will help him get through the day. I found these on Little Birdie Secrets have you checked her out? She is the ultimate in cool. LOVE her blog. I have made granola bars many times before. They were always good but very crumbly. This is one of those recipes that you can switch around a lot. I did not have sunflower seeds so I used more oats. I used 3/4 cup of raw almonds (what I had) and used 1/4 cup raw pecans (they give it a good flavor but I used mostly the healthier nut). For the fruit I only had about a 1/2 cup of raisins so I put 1/2 cup coconut in the toasting part. This turned out FABULOUS. I wrapped mine in wax paper and put them in the freezer. That way they aren't consumed in one sitting :)
