My two year old can't get enough of these.

Followed directions, only added some chocolate chips, maybe that was the problem, but they were falling apart. I suppose you could cut it into bars, but mine simply didn't hold together. Also, the oats didn't soften enough, i think maybe instant oats might have been better, as it is I can feel the oats grating my teeth. Won't make again.
