I give them 5 stars, even though the batch I made wasn't quite perfect. I did NOT want crumbly bars, as one review mentioned, so I threw in an extra 1/2 cup applesauce. The result was a tough heavy oatmeal layer. I think these would prob. be good if made as is. I used juice-sweetened rasp. jelly. Yum!
I followed Neneldae's lead and added only 1 can of sliced peaches (drained). The flavor was very good, but they stuck to the pan and didn't really hold together like I had hoped for a portable breakfast. Sorry.
YUM!! I had to use two cans of sliced peaches (mostly drained) because I didn't have preserves. I used all whole wheat flour since I was out of soy and old fashioned oats works just as well as quick oats! I also added cinnamon to the "batter" and on top before baking along with using chunky cinnamon applesauce. It turned out more like cobbler. So very good!
These were so yummy! Whole family loved them, and they are pretty easy to make too. My 14-month old just went crazy over them! Thank you for a great healthy treat!
