Like the first two reviewer, I liked the flavor but the bars just fell apart. But unlike the last reviewer, letting them cool overnight didn't help my bars be less crumbly. I'll make them for myself in the future maybe and deal with the crumbling, but definitely will not serve these. I did like the more natural less sweet flavor of these over store bought.
Followed the recipe pretty much exactly as described (the oats were done toasting about a minute sooner than suggested). I had no difficulty with the mixture being too "dry". By the time the honey/peanut butter mixture came to a boil, it thinned out quite a bit. The mixture pressed very easily into the baking dish. When it was done after 13.5 minutes, the bars were soft. I'm sure it would have been difficult to cut them into skinny bar shapes at that time hence why the recipe says to let them cool completely. It took a few hours of sitting at room temperature before I cut them. I think this is important. They set up during this time. When I cut them, they didn't break apart or crumble. My young daughter really enjoyed them (she's a huge fan of golden raisins so I already had her vote).Read More
My changes - used agave instead of honey because that's what I had and extra virgin coconut oil in place of the canola oil. Mine did not seem dry like the other reviewer's. Perfectly coated. However the bars are soft so they fall apart when you pick the up. Still a good treat.I would make again.Read More
I followed the recipe very closely, the only difference being that I used a tri-color quinoa mix and regular raisins instead of golden. The mix seemed a little too dry once I combined all the ingredients. Once it baked and cooled, it was impossible for me to keep the "bar" shape. There are some bigger pieces, otherwise the outcome for me would be better used as a granola. The taste was pleasant. Not fantastic, but I enjoyed the more natural taste and the fact that it wasn't overly sweet. I would add more of the liquid or cut the dry ingredients next time.Read More
