Made a bunch of these cranberry chews at the weekend, and they were so good. I used half whole wheat flour, which I usually do when I bake. I also used 1/2 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup butter, and these bars came out wonderfully delicious. I have been enjoying them for breakfast and snack. I froze most of the bars. A great recipe. 432
