Reviews forCinnamon Nut Bars
"I made these bars yesterday and followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of the icing. I skipped the butter and honey; and added 1 teaspoon more of water. These bars are delicious!!??"
"The cinnamon flavor in these bars is just right. I used one cup of all-purpose flour since there was no wheat flour on hand. Also, walnuts were sparse so I used half walnuts and half almonds for the amount of nuts in the recipe. These are very tasty bars."
"Has anyone used all plain flour? I never have whole wheat flour and wonder if I may substitute plain all purpose flour."
"I made these for work everyone loved them. I didn't put the icing on them I sprinkled them with powdered sugar. I will make these again very easy to make and delish!"
"Super moist and yummy. I used almonds in my recipe and when I prepared the batter it seemed that there was so little of it to be used in a 13x9 pan. But they ended up looking like a brownie bar size in the pan so perfect."
"Amalet, sugars are a subcategory of the total carbohydrate count of 18 per serving. Our nutritional listing only lists the categories as a whole. Hope that clears up any confusion."
"The recipe calls for 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of cnfectioners sugar yetyour Nutritional facts, is silent on sugar content ?? How Is that possible . What is going on at Tast of Home ?"
"These are very delicious and moist. They were better the next day and reminded me of a cinnamon roll in terms of flavor. We will be making this again."
