      The only things I changed were pecans instead of almonds, 2 cups of all purpose flour, and no wheat germ. They came out wonderful! Everyone loved them! I'm fixing them again for Christmas eve!

      These are GREAT NUTRITIOUS bars! I'm sure they would be heavenly tasting with all that butter but I couldn't bring myself to use it with the other healthy ingredients. I subbed Baker's Prune Butter (substitute for Oil in Chocolate Cakes) which probably made it drier and chewier than it would have been but I still enjoyed them. For the sugar I used 1/2 cup Splenda granular and 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend. I used whole-grain quick cooking oats, unbleached all-purpose flour and an 8oz bag of roasted sliced almonds. I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon to the topping and am glad I did. Made for Zaar tag.
