I found this recipe on one of our monthly Brown County REA newsletters. My husband and I eat a few of these bars each day. It’s a basic recipe to which you can add any of your favorite flavors…coconut, chocolate or different flavored chips, nuts or dried fruits.

"Anything with oats and honey in the recipe gets my attention, so I had to try these. Good job. Please fix the recipe, though. These two sentences don't make sense together: "Cool 15 minutes on a wire rack; cut into squares. Cool completely before removing from pan.""

"I made this with my daughter and am very happy with the finished product. She enjoyed helping me in the kitchen. I omitted the nuts and the sunflower kernels because I didn't have any on hand. It is a bit sweet for my taste, but my kids approve. I baked for 20 minutes and cooled in the freezer. I think next time I will experiment with less brown sugar and other ingredients, such as dried fruit. Overall, great recipe and I will be making it again."

"When I tried these, they did not hold together. Maybe they did not cook long enough? It tasted good and made a good ice cream topping but I won't try them again."

"I tried this, and thought it needed more cooking time, but I was wrong. Mine were dry and had nothing to do with the recipe. I will try it again and this time follow the directions to a tee."
