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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 11, 2012

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.

MY REVIEW

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.
