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!
You did it again Kitten! You have never let me down - not to mention providing me with another fabulous recipe! No more Nutri-Grain bars for this house, I am making them for now on. I did try a sugar-free jam just to see if it made a difference. It was good, but I will stick to the "real" stuff next time. :)
WOW! This was great!! The base/topping wons wonderful! I used a 1 lb (18 oz) of strawberry preserves. I think it was a bit much, in the middle the bars didn't hold together as well as I would have liked. My 6 yo didn't care for them but she's finiky and claimed befoe she had them "I don't like jelly". I cut into 'sticks' and wrapped in plastic wrap and put in the fridge for future snacking. Thanks!!
Very good. Used 1 1/2 C strawberry jam made last year, and this was plenty to cover. I don't think extra brown sugar is necessary, the sweetness from the jam staisfies that tooth! These went in a hurry!
I love these bars Kitt! I made this last week with homemade blueberry (sugarfree) spread. Delicious!! I did add a little more cinnamon. I'm thinking these would be great with just about any flavor jam or spread! I know this will be made often in this house!!!! Thank you again for another wonderful treat!!!
Thses are wonderful! Used home made apple butter in one & peach preserves in another. They were gone in a flash! Kitten you did it once again!
Oh my gosh..Kitten, these bars are the whip. I just love em. I used my home-made strawberry/rhubarb jam for the filling. The taste is sinful that I forget that they're good for you too:-) This recipe reminds me of a cobbler in that a scoop of ice-cream would also go perfectly if you chose to make this as a dessert. Made for ThinkPink!~
Awesome! These are great. Tastes a lot like a cobbler, but in a handy to-go version. I made a batch and wrapped them individually to store in the freezer.
