Crunchy and Nutty Granola Bar

I love Granola nut bars (especially with different nuts, honey, and dried fruits).
On an impulse today I tried to prepare granola nut bar at home instead of buying. I tried a Granola bar variant with walnut, dates, pecan, almond, coconut and honey. I guess this has come out tasty as my husband and kids seem to enjoy.
Normally old fashioned oats is used in the preparation, but I have used the regular one.
