The problem here is that the title actually it's misleading, the name should be "Spongy Oatmeal Bars" not Chewy.
Was not what I was looking for, they don't taste bad but the consistency it's what I din't like and I see most people neither.
Thanks for sharing
I didn't like this. It had a spongy texture and little flavor.
I doubled the recipe after reading other reviews, but maybe I shouldn't have. In a 9x13 pan my bars are thick and the texture of soft cake. With hard grains of oatmeal. I used rolled oats- quick would be better I think. I wish they were chewy and wonder if the original recipe would be...
These are great. I made them exactly according to the recipe, using plain nonfat yogurt. They make a great, quick breakfast. Thank you!
Healthy and tastes good - my favorite adjectives for food. I subbed cranberries and orange zest for the raisins, and added just a few white chocolate chips. I also added a couple tsp of oat bran and wheat bran. Oh yeah, I also subbed applesauce for the oil. Thanks for sharing!
These were really good. I liked the firm texture-some healthy bars (made without a lot of butter) don't hold together very well! I used Splenda sugars, applesauce for the oil & half whole wheat/oat flour. I also didn't use as many raisins (about half the amt), used no salt & doubled up on the cinnamon. They're not too sweet, but the raisins add great bursts of sweetness. They were just thick enough for me & were very easy! Thank u for sharing.
This recipe was definately more cake-like and chewy. It was good, a little bland though. I would maybe add more cinnamon or even some nutmeg. I also used Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom Vanilla Creme Yogurt to save on calories and sugar. Fiance ate half the batch in one sitting. Used an 8X8 pan and baked for 25 minutes. The bars were a perfect thickness.
Great recipe! I used the yogurt I made from "Homemade Yogurt" and used chocolate chips instead of the raisins. I also had to add time to the baking...about 15 minutes. But soooo good!
These are great bars. I love how healthy they are! The only change I did was add another 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. It took a little more effort to spread in the pan since there's not a lot of batter and the bars are pretty thin, but it's worth it! They're nice and portable and perfect for snacking. Thank you!
