"I agree with the reviewer who said this is more like cake. But it was good, and got positive feedback from the teachers at my school."

"Very good flavor. For the applesauce I used chunky applesauce, added some dried cranberries and did frosting with cream cheese frosting. I had leftover batter so I made a few muffins which is what I am going to do next time just make all muffins out of it and omit the cream cheese frosting. Very moist and flavorful on its own."

"The flavor of the bars was great - the spices were right. However, the texture was very cake-like. As a result, it was very hard to eat these as "bars." We ended up just making a cream cheese frosting and then they were much better."

"I just added powder sugar, butter, vanilla, cream cheese and little milk for frosting better than confectioners sugar opt. VERY GOOD because I like applesauce than oil."

"Very good and super moist. Instead of confectioners' sugar, try whipped cream. Yum!"
