I think maybe melting the butter would work better with these bars. With the butter just softened, I found that they did not hold together well enough and fell apart as soon as I cut them. I think I'll stick with another granola bar recipe I have in my files.

This is a nice, easy bar cookie. It comes together quickly and is popular for potlucks and gatherings. I like to sometimes vary by using peanut butter chips instead of the chocolate or butterscotch.

my children love these bars and they do freeze well. They are always baked and sent with them to university.
