These soft and chewy treats have a hint of orange marmalade, so they're a fun change of pace from typical granola bars. They're so easy to put together and so delicious, you'll find yourself making them all the time.—Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

"Didn't have orange, so I used cherry jam. These were delicious and filling! I cooked them 15 minutes, cooled slightly before cutting, and they stayed together pretty well. Will definitely be making these again!"
