    I mixed up a batch of these a couple of days ago. The following modifications were made: Sprouted wheat flour for the WW, 45g coconut oil for one stick of butter, 1/3c brown sugar + 2tb maple syrup, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 c each of golden raisins and chopped pecans.

    The flavor is subtle and really nice. The bars are a little dry, but I believe that is due to the changes I made to the original recipe and that I baked them a few minutes more than the instructions called for. Nonetheless the texture is pretty good – just need to have a napkin or little plate under the bar to catch crumbs.

    I cut 21 bars of approx 178 calories each. I will definitely play with this recipe some more.

    Just made these. Was looking for a simple oatmeal bar recipe. Added some pecans, almonds, chocolate chips and dates. They smell fantastic! Will definitely be checking out your other recipes =)

    I was on the hunt for an easy to prep and grab breakfast item for myself (I hate breakfast) but they’ve been a hit with the whole family. I like it with pecans and apricots to up the nutritional variety but the family favorite is with a bit of dark chocolate chips. As a regular item, we swapped to brown sugar (adds up as honey) but cut the sugar in half and they’re still delicious. My kids now beg me for them.
    This morning, I told my hubs I made a double batch. “Good. Except you should have made a quadruple batch.)

    • Our family begs for these bars too, Julia! I love that your family is good with less sugar, it’s so much healthier for you. The apricots and pecans sound wonderful!

    Added a little baking powder, made it “cake-ier”. Also used half molasses, half honey. Awesome flavour! Added dried cranberries, cinnamon, allspice. Used half butter, half coconut oil. Used steel cut oats and gluten free flour. It came out amazingly well.

    These are amazing. Super easy to make, smell INCREDIBLE, and they come out so soft and buttery and delicious. I was going to add cinnamon but tried some of the raw mixture and it tasted so good as it was that I didn’t dare – why change a perfect recipe?

    I really liked these. I added slivered almonds and dried cranberries. My husband’s thought they were too dry. More for me!!

  7. Yummy! I added raisins, coconot and walnuts…half cup of each. What a GREAT breakfast for kids! And a lovely dessert for all.

  8. I made these this afternoon and when I cut them in half, the middle was still gooey! I threw them back in the over so hopefully they cook through the middle.

    • Depending on how hot your oven gets, you’ll need to monitor cooking time. If they are a bit gooey in the middle, putting them back in the oven is a good idea. Just keep an eye on them as they tend to continue cooking after they come out of the oven. You don’t want them to become too dry.

    Thank you for the recipe! Made them today and they are delicious! I used half a cup of butter and 1/2 cup of coconut oil, also added semi sweet chocolate chips and a drizzle over the top and my kids loved them!
