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.
