    These were so easy to prepare! I’m not a baker, so easy is key. I used brown sugar instead of honey and regular flour (because it’s what I had). And added chocolate chips and coconut. They are so good!

    I just made these. I was looking for something quick to make that reminded me of a oatmeal cookie. This was perfect and so simple. I added chocolate chips. Would make again.

  3. These were delicious! The while family loved them! I used brown sugar and substituted coconut oil for half the butter, added peanut butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, craisins and dark chocolate chunks. I also used my hot breakfast cereal mix, which includes a ton of healthy ingredients, like flax seeds, millet, and quinoa.. So yummy and filling. I’m about to make a second batch, to include shredded coconut, and I’m going to spread it more thinly in a larger pan. Can’t wait to eat them again! Thank you!!!

    I am so excited that I found your recipe. I saw some on a cooking show and didn’t write down the recipe. I am adding dried cherries and dried blueberries along with some chopped pecans. I hope they are yummy. I can’t wait until they come out of the oven. Thank you so much for such a versatile recipe.

    these are AMAZING
    i accidentally put the wrong amount of honey in the first time i made them so after they were out of the oven, i cut them and then drizzled honey all over the tops and let it soak in
    fantastic recipe!

    I’ve made this recipe countless times! I’ve added a little almond butter and cinnamon to it and it is divine. Thank you for this recipe! Delicious and makes my whole family happy!

    I used coconut oil, flaxseed eggs, added sliced almonds, and had 1/4 cup cocoa powder with 1 3/4 cup almond flour. Was amazing. Trying a peanut chocolate chip one now. Love that this recipe is so versatile. We are gluten, dairy, vanilla, and egg free household. It is a challenge to find recipes I can tweak that the family asks for more. Thanks

    • I’m so glad you are enjoying the recipe, Regina! Love your substitutions and so happy the recipe was versatile enough to accommodate your family’s dietary restrictions! Thanks for the 5-star review! xo

    These are yummy! Must be the butter = ) I’ve been making these on the regular for a while now. I cut them into cereal-bar shaped pieces, wrap them in wax paper and freeze them for a fast breakfast or afternoon tea snack. I especially like that they’re not loaded with processed sugar. I rarely comment on recipes but this one is so darn good I just had to let you know. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Ah, thanks so much Sandie!! I’m glad you’ve enjoying them. I love that these little bars aren’t loaded with processed sugar, too! We make them ALL THE TIME!

    These are so delicious! I added coconut, raisins, cinnamon, and a small amount of mini chocolate chips. Love the whole wheat flour & honey in this recipe. Not too sweet. 🙂

    Tried this recipe for breakfast this morning. Kids and I loved it! We’re excited to try the bars with berries next time!

  11. The nutrition label for the oatmeal bars does not say the serving size. Is it based on the 9 servings or 16 servings? For diabetics counting carbs it makes a big difference.

  12. Hi, sorry if this has been answered already. I followed the instructions and used the same ingredients but the bars are very dry. Which ingredient should I increase (or add a new one) to make them more moist:?

    • Hi Chris,

      Yes, these bars tend to be on the dry side. I would try the following if you’d like them a little more moist:

      -Add 1/4 cup applesauce to the recipe.


      -Reduce flour by 1/4 cup.
