These are a great way to start your day--they aren't crumbly, so these bars are the perfect "on-the-go" breakfast for little hands to grab on their way to school, or for bigger hands on their way to the office!

I love these bars!!!! I eat a breakfast bar, banana and yogurt every morning for breakfast. The bars were just getting to expensive and had a lot of sugar. So, I looked to the "Zaar" and found these. I made them with dried cherries instead of raisins - just don't like them. I didn't have any evaporated milk so I used 1/2 n 1/2. I also added a little bit of cinnamon - I like spice with my oatmeal. Made them in a 9 X 13 and cut them in 16 large bars. Thank you for this post.
We need to leave for school for my daughter at 6:45 am, so I was looking for some healthy options to grab and eat in the car. This basic recipe is fantastic. We have tried with chopped prunes and walnuts and are about to try dried cherries. I also plan to try peanut butter (minus some of the oil). Thanks for providing this!
These were good. Not too sweet, although I did use dried apricots in place of raisins and added in a few dark chocolate chips as well as pecans instead of walnuts. Both my little ones like these and I always prefer to give homemade when able. Thanks!
