With two busy boys who would rather move around than sit and eat, I needed a gluten-free, hearty, hand-held treat that could double as a quick breakfast, brunch, lunch or snack. This is a favorite of theirs, and I can change it up to accommodate ingredients I have on hand. —Susan James, Cokato, Minnesota

"This makes a very good bar. I cut the recipe in half and followed it exactly. I'm going to make another batch of these bars soon and will add a little vanilla as suggested by another reviewer. I may also add some dried cranberries. Thanks for a yummy treat!"

"I thought it needed vanilla. I halved the recipe and put in a 9x13 and used peanut butter/choc chips but still thought it needed vanilla."

"n answer to the gluten free oatmeal..most stores have a gluten free section ( except Walmart--Kroger is excellent) Gluten free oatmeal is like any other oatmeal only NOT processed in a plant that processes wheat products, most regular oatmeal is...just read the ingredients, it will say if it is."

"I'm curious about where to find gluten free oats. It's my understanding that oats are not appropriate for those with celiac disease. Can someone please clarify? This recipe sounds excellent and I'd love to give it a try."

"I haven't made it, but now I will -- I'm not a banana fan and am glad to see an alternative to the bananas."

"The first time I made these I followed the recipe exactly. My husband, who is just not a banana person, wanted me to try them again using something other than bananas. I substituted 1 1/3 cups of unsweetened applesauce and 1 tsp. of cinnamon for the bananas and used dark chocolate chips. He says the recipe is now perfect and can't seem to get enough of them!"

"I cut this recipe in half and put it in a smaller pan. Also, I used all chocolate chips. Delicious gluten-free treat."
