Nice tasting receipe. I did not read the reviews until after I made it and therefore was a little disappointed when the recipe came out like a cake verses a bar. I was really looking for a bar. I think the title is miss leading and should be changed to indicate it is a cake not a bar. Thanks for sharing.
Wow! Delicious! This is like something I would come up with (and then I would retire from life, feeling I had accomplished enough ;) My family and I are living in Prague for a few months and my quest for the ingredients spanned our first month here. I finally finished the list, finding a grater (although I gave up on the cinnamon and vanilla extract). I used Spelt flour, omitted the PB and added a T flaxseeds and about half-2/3 cup walnut pieces. I also used 2 small eggs instead of one large. I did an erratic baking job, using a too high convection setting at first and then baking it too much on top and not enough on bottom. Nevertheless, I was able to tweak it. And I do think you have to watch these closely and adjust the cooking time a LOT based on what ingredients you use and how moist you want the bars. We took these with us for breakfast and ate them in the most beautiful part of Prague we've seen yet, with views of the river and beautiful architecture in a less-traveled part of town. They were devoured by my two-year old boy and husband. It's hard to believe how good you feel after eating something so delicious. There is no sugar high and you are left feeling satisfied and balanced. Thanks a million, hellokitty!
We loved these bars. Had to make a few substiitues to accomodate pantry & allergies: used flax instead of egg, choc chips for craisins, all brown sugar, sunbutter for peanut butter, no nuts. Made a great breakfast
Made it exactly as the recipe stated. They were actually very good. Next time I will omit the peanut butter because I could really taste it and I didn't think the flavor of the peanut butter went that well with the other ingredients.
Delicious! Feels like you are having a decadent dessert, but much healthier. I used coconut oil in place of the oil listed. Even my husband that isn't into healthy food loved this recipe.
Tastes good. I am giving it 4 stars because it is more cake-like than bar-like. I might cut down the baking soda next time.
I really liked this receipe. I made a few substitutions: 1) used 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup vanilla protein powder, 2) used 1/2 cup raisins instead of 1 cup craisins, 3) used 3/4 cup maple syrup in place of brown & white sugar. They turned out very tasty!
i made this recipe this evening it is wonderful. did not change a thing. would make again but use splenda. thanks.
Fabulous! The only changes I made were out of necessity. I actually stumbled upon this recipe while trying to find something to do with some butternut squash I had baked. So rather than use zucchini, I used cooked squash. I halved the recipe so it could fit into my little toaster oven and used one egg white rather than a whole egg. I reduced the sugars by half and used 1/4c walnuts. I added a pinch of nutmeg and ginger. Delicious! Absolutely great!
