I'm a swim coach for kids and started making these bars for them as a snack. I wanted something that was easy for them to eat but would also give them energy. The kids loved them from the very first time I brought them. Now I bring them to every team event. —Sarah Riviere, Prescott, Arizona

I couldn't get them to set up, so I spread them in a 9x13 pan and baked for about 20 minutes at 350. They set up, became crunchy, and were delicious. I will make again. The whole family loved them.

I liked the flavor, but next time will reduce the amount of canola oil.

Wonderful flavor! Sweet autumn! Next time I would put them in a slightly larger pan so as to make them less thick.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 10, 2013

This is delicious! Tastes like apple crisp topping. I subbed a couple ingredients that I didn't have in the cabinet so my batch didn't set up. But it still tastes amazing as an ice cream/yogurt topping!
