Actually it is very tasty if you like extra sweet granola, the coffee is a nice touch. Baking in the oven it smells great. But. Firstly, it did not stay together enough to even get a any bars. Way to much sugar and honey, and with the coconut and raisins even sweeter. I baked it the full 35 minutes and let it cool 5 minutes, cut the squares, and let it cool completely; only the edges in the corners were solid, but when I got it out of the pan the top separated from the bottom. I tried taking from the middle but the bar fell apart. I ended up crumbling it up and using for granola cereal, with fresh almond milk, it is a nice change, and it is wonderful with yogurt. I was disappointed; sorry for the negative feedback, I would not make this again.
