I couldn't get them to set up, so I spread them in a 9x13 pan and baked for about 20 minutes at 350. They set up, became crunchy, and were delicious. I will make again. The whole family loved them.

I liked the flavor, but next time will reduce the amount of canola oil.

Wonderful flavor! Sweet autumn! Next time I would put them in a slightly larger pan so as to make them less thick.

This is delicious! Tastes like apple crisp topping. I subbed a couple ingredients that I didn't have in the cabinet so my batch didn't set up. But it still tastes amazing as an ice cream/yogurt topping!

These bars were very easy to make and are kind of addicting. Didn't have any trouble getting them to set up. I boiled my sugar mixture for a little bit and set the bars in the fridge to set. All four of my kids liked them and I liked the healthier ingredients. I will make these again at some point.

Next time I'll omit the nutmeg. These stuck together only when they were refrigerated.
