Awesome granola bar recipe

I found this great recipe created by Jessica Williams.
Group the contents into two categories, wet and dry. Mix all your wet together in one bowl and all your dry together in a second bowl. Then fold the dry into the wet, a little at a time, mixing as you go. Then spread the batter on two cookie-sheets/baking pans. Place in conventional oven on 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cook for 5-10 more minutes until light brown but not burnt! Remove, slice into granola bars, or let cool and break into granola-clusters. We eat this plain or with milk in a bowl, or with yogurt & fruit (raspberries, blueberries, pear, or apple.)

1 cup honey (This makes it just barely sweet enough. Add more if your family is used to store-bought granola bars.)
1-2 eggs (Optional. This will make it stick together more for “chunky” granola or to slice into granola bars.)
1/4 cup of water or almond milk (Regular or vanilla, any variation okay.)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 cup of oil (Sunflower is preferred, but I’ve made with olive oil just fine)
1 cup of almond or peanut butter (Optional)
This gets fun. Go seed and nut crazy.
4 cups of oats
1 cup of sunflower seeds
1 cup of chopped walnuts
1 cup of sesame seeds
1/2 cup of flax seeds
1/2 cup of chia seeds
1 cup flour (I have experimented with Kamut, Spelt & Wheat)
1 Tablespoon of cacao powder (This gives a slightly chocolate flavor; optional.)
1 Tablespoon of green powder (Available online or in healthfood stores; there are many brands. This sneaks GREENS into this Grrranola treat. Optional. The flavor can be a little “intense.”)
1 cup of raisons or chocolate chips
