I have found with experience that the corn syrup will melt at the edges and not hold the bar shape.  

Granola Bar Recipe-

My baking tip is to place another pan on your baking tray to hold the shape of the granola bars while they bake.  My mini muffin tray was the perfect size to place on the baking tray.  I know, it looked crazy, but it worked perfectly for the job!  You could also bake the granola in a square pan, but I found it much easier to lift the parchment paper off the baking tray to cut into bars.

I have made this recipe twice now, and this will now be my go to snack recipe.  It is also a perfect snack to make for traveling.  You can place in a sandwich baggie and take with you anywhere.   It does not last long!
