I was looking through my Cooking Light magazine last week and came across a granola bar recipe. Well some of the ingredients in it I do not like, so I thought well if I take the cooking time from it I should be able to put in what I like, so I think the cooking time and the oatmeal is all that is the same, but I still got the general idea from that recipe. So about 75% mine, 25% theirs. Hope y'all enjoy
