These soft and chewy treats have a hint of orange marmalade, so they're a fun change of pace from typical granola bars. They're so easy to put together and so delicious, you'll find yourself making them all the time.—Barbara Nowakowski, North Tonawanda, New York

"Didn't have orange, so I used cherry jam. These were delicious and filling! I cooked them 15 minutes, cooled slightly before cutting, and they stayed together pretty well. Will definitely be making these again!"

"I added 1/2 cup wheat germ and reduced the coconut by 1/2 cup. I also added a 1/4 cup milk, and used some apricot preserves I had. I used brown sugar Splenda instead of brown sugar. Next time I will use a smaller pan and layered the batter, then the jam, then the batter again. Good breakfast."

"I make this recipe often - can add sunflower seeds, wheat germ, dried cranberries, etc. to add nutritional value. Tried different flavor marmalades and jams - orange marmalade was by far the best and many jams didn't really work. Watch the baking time close - they get crispy fast. The crumbles are great for yogurt toppers (think McDonald's yogurt parfaits)."

"Yummy flavor, but they did fall apart. Kids didn't care for the marmalade, but the adults love it!"
