I didn't like them much.I am a coffee person but somehow these did not appeal to me.sorry!
So light and yet dense. I know that makes no sense but they were cakey yet the flavour was light. You didn't mention when to add the nuts so I just sprinkled my pecans on top. The batter seemed too little to put into an 8x8 pan so I made cupcake brownies with them. Just a touch too much batter for 6 cupcakes but didn't want to dirty a pan for just 1 :) The center sank in the cupcakes, but we didn't care!
These bars are a wonderful treat! I couldn't decide between pecans and chocolate chips so I used both! My bars came out nice and moist, almost chewy, and the powdered sugar was a perfect topping. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
YUMMY! I made this with decaf instant coffee, whole wheat flour, added 1/2 tsp cinnamon, subbed Splenda for the sugar and 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar blend. I omitted the pecans and added 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I baked it about 22 minutes in an ungreased glass 8x8. It has a wonderful coffee flavor which is very nice with the cinnamon and chocolate and mine has a delightful crisp texture I enjoy. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
I made these yesterday and they were a big hit. My mom couldn't believe that these bars didn't have any chocolate in them. :) I used Folgers decaf coffee and since I didn't have an 8x8 pan, I used a round cake pan instead. It actually turned out fantastic in the cake pan because every piece came out with a wonderful crust, just like a pizza!
These lived up to all my expectations for that great coffee taste to come thru. I made them w/the chocolate chips per family's preference, but I would rather have had the nuts. I"m sure they'd be awesome. The chocolate was equally as good though and that also compliments the coffee taste exceptionally. thanks for the great coffee recipe!!
