Hearty breakfast not bars. This is softer than bar consistency. DD1 (5 years old) says it is yummy eaten with a dose of organic 3.5% milk on top. I liked it just not as much as her. I used organic wheat free rolled oats, organic pear instead of apple which worked well, organic rasins and organic chopped apricots in a lesser amount, no optional coconut, less organic chopped walnuts instead of almonds per preference, plus the rest of the ingredients. I like that this contains no added sugar. I will try another baked recipe next time.
Yummy! I actually used almond milk (so my vegan friend could have some) and I omitted the coconut. Super delicious - it's not oatmeal consistency, more like a heavy pudding. Super yummy and super nutritious!
Fabulous for breakfast or brunch with yoghurt - I doubled the recipe and used skim milk and dried fruit salad as I had no dates with great success - it is a casserole type thing and I am unsure of the use of the term "bar" in the title as it is too soft to cut up and you need to serve it with a big spoon but it is very healthy and I loved it !!
