"I wish that when giving the nutritional value that it would also be offered with using Splenda as a replacement for the sugar. That being said, I made these using Splenda which, because I find sweeter than sugar, I reduced to 1/2 cup. These were quite good and worth a repeat. Next time I will double the recipe as I didn't get the yield stated."

"These were ok,, but got almost soggy after one day. Taste was good, but texture was a bit off."

"the squares are very soft, more like a baked oatmeal than a "bar". Not sure what I expected, but it wasn't very satisfying."

"Very good and easy to make. Great with vanilla ice cream on top! I suggest adding a little cinnamon though."
