These are the most delicious granola bars I've ever had, easily. And that's saying alot because my wife has made some excellent homemade granola bars before this as well. She used a recipe this time that didn't require baking anything in the oven. I watched her mix some solid stuff (granola, cranberries, etc) with some liquid stuff (which kinda looked like caramel on the stove) and then just let it sit and firm up in the pan. They go great with my coffee in the morning at work.
