Something sticky for granola...

I've been making this granola that has oats, wheat germ, nuts and assorted dried fruits with some vegetable oil, honey and vanilla. It can be baked in mini muffin cups and comes out as a mini-chunk, but the second you bite into it (or even if it's handled without care), it crumbles.

Is there something I can add to make it more sticky? I tried more honey and that kind of helped but was too much honey.

It's not a big deal. I'd just like to be able to eat it in public without a mess or a spoon.

I wonder if a beaten egg might bind the mixture?

I wish granola would float better in milk. Why hasn't one of the major cereal makers concocted a granola cereal that allows each granola cluster to float in milk? Then I wouldn't have to use my spoon to dredge it up. It probably wouldn't be granola then.

Caslon, you could always have your granola with a glass of milk instead of pouring the milk over it.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
