"These totally fell apart. The only substitution I made was to use raisins instead of apples... And I let them cool completely before cutting. I got about 6 bars, a couple inch sized pieces, and lots of crumble... it does taste good and I'll use it on yogurt I guess, but not making it again!"

"I'm the one who wrote about stirring? I didn't read it right the first time! But, today I made a pan and they came out beautifully! Cut into sharp edged bars without crumbling and I waited (too long!) for them to cool before cutting. Very good! I had 3 bars before stopping! I will definitely make these again? soon! I will also be trying other additives, so many options out there. Thank you for all the great recipes!"

"Haven't tried the recipe yet, but wanted to clarify on the comments about "stirring and baking". ONLY the oats and almonds are to be baked at stirred, according to Step 1 in the recipe. Step 3 is to press all the mixed ingredients into the pan to bake the bars. Hope that helped!"

"As a rule, I do not like any Granola or Health bars. But these are delicious. I sometimes substitute raisins for the dried apples. 130 calories per bar is great, now if I could only learn to stop eating at 1 bar. Easy to make, fun to make and delicious to eat. Try them you'll like them!"

"I just copied this to print and I think I see why so many have had crumble problems. the first paragraph says "stirring occasionally" ? the last paragraph says "press firmly into pan." If they are stirred during baking they will not be bars. I can't wait to get the ingredients and taste these!"
