    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are great to take to work, kids lunch boxes, for a potluck or a bake sale, you can slice them and stick them in the freezer then wrap tightly in foil, put a frozen wrapped bar into your kid's lunchboxes, they will thaw out by noon, they are just as good if not better than the store-bought! ---This also works well using blueberry or other flavors of jams, for easy spreading heat the jam in the microwave until softened :)

      These are just wonderful! I made them for my 2 year old that loooves nutragrain bars. I made a few changes to them that suited us better. I also didnt have any cake mix, so I used what a previous reviewer used instead. The flour, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Although I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup. I also used 3/4 cup ground flax seed instead of the 1/4 cup melted butter. I did use the 2tbsp butter though. These were definitely sweet enough and I will absolutely be making these again instead of buying them. Thank you for the recipe! I have come to adore all of the recipes that you post! :)

      Tasted yummy with a scoop of ice cream, but I thought it was much sweeter than an Nutrigrain bar and kinda made my teeth hurt ;-) Still I Iiked it well enough that I will give it another go, this time without the added sugar. Thanks for a great easy recipe!
