Reviews for Makeover Oatmeal Bars
"I made these yesterday. They are super quick and easy! I made a few modifications to lighten them up a bit more. I used raw sugar, whole wheat pastry flour, only 1/4 cup of canola oil & two tb of ground flaxseed. I also used instead of 2 cups of quick oats, I used 1 cup 100% old fashioned oats and 1 cup quick oats. I made them for work and everyone liked them."
"These bars are easy to make for a fast breakfast or a snack. Just the right amount of moisture. The kids loved these."
"Pretty good! Perfect for school lunches. ( I don't find these bars to be dry at all.)"
"I know it was healthy to begin with but i wanted to cut the oil out and change it up. i used turbinado sugar in place of the regular sugar,1 medium banana in place of the oil,amber agave syrup in place of maple syrup,whole wheat flour instead of white and 1/3 cup dried cranberries instead of raisins..it turned out AWESOME and i will definately make it again!"
"It was very dry. I wondered if some of the ingredients were incorrect or missing"
