I haven't tried these, they are for a request on the recipe board. This makes a nice Autumn dessert or snack. Great addition to the dessert table at Thanksgiving Holiday time too.

It was absolutely delish!!! Just what I was looking for. Made it for a get together, and everybody went CRAZY about it. Definitely worth the calories, and definitely a keeper. Thanks for posting.

I like to try a recipie "as is" before I go changing it, but unfortunately I ended up making a perfect mistake! I didn't have cranberries on hand, but I did have blueberries. Oh WOW!!! Definitely a 5 star recipie! Having said that, we need a 6th star option....Since then I have made these again but this time I added 1 cup coconut to the oat mixture (turned out perfect; not too dry). Then I added 1 cup white chocolate chips and 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips to the berries and nuts in the center. HOLY FABULOUS! I really recommend these bars this way. Divine. 6 stars.

These bars are so good (and easy)! In fact, I have been making them every x-mas since I found this post in 02. I am actually making them tonight for some work friends. That makes 6 years! I just haven't written a response/rating for this recipe until now. I felt that it was about time that I give this recipe credit since I have received so many compliments on the bars I've made. You must try these!!!!
