The flavor of this is fabulous. I did add 1/2 cup of raisins (requested by my 3 year old) and an extra tsp of vanilla. I also topped with a drizzle of a cream cheese glaze. My only problem was that the finished product was very crumbly. I pressed the mixture gently into the pan before I baked it. I will definitely make this again but I will try to press it down more firmly next time. I will update after my next attempt.
