I was having several of my grandson's over and wanted a quick and delicious snack they would like. The bars are moist and not too sweet. I served them along with vanilla ice cream. This recipe is a keeper.

I was looking for an quick and easy dessert that said "autumn" to me. This recipe fit the bill very nicely! I did think that 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon wouldn't be enough, so I bumped that up to 1 tsp and added some allspice and a little nutmeg, as well. With the additional spices, the result was delicious and worthy of 5 stars. My husband loved it, which isn't an easy accomplishment.

A nice recipe. Bars have a great crunch on the outside, but are very moist inside. Could use some additional seasoning such as cloves, allspice, or more cinnamon, but otherwise very good.
