I have been getting creative with recipes; but I could use some advice.

I have lately been trying to be more creative with recipes from my cookbooks or those I find online; but sometimes trying to be creative can be tricky.
My question is: today I made a simple peanut butter square; and added Skor toffee bits, but I need to ask if anyone thinks I should have added more than one cup of flour?
The original recipe calls for 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of flour, 2 eggs, 1 tsp. of vanilla extract, 11/2 cups of sugar,1/2 cup of butter or margarine; and then I added one package of Skor toffee bits, and a few handfuls of Harvest Raisin almond raisin cereal.
I made this once before; and think I added more flour, but didn't write it down, so it looked kind of soft still in the middle, and I had to bake it longer than the specified 30 minutes.
