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.

Easy and quick. I used unflavored cooking coconut oil. My only suggestion would be to put frosting on when almost completely cool. Will make again.

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.
