      These ckae bars had a yummy flavor but did not hold for very long :( They were at their finest just freshly baked, otherwise they were just so-so.

      I never would have thought about grinding the nuts, fruits, and oats, but it makes all the difference in the texture; it's not like a cake-y pastry holding together large chunks. I didn't have any almonds, so I substituted them with 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds and used 1 3/4 cups of mixed fruit and nuts. I also didn't have any wheat germ, so I used wheat bran instead. The result was delicious... thanks Sharon!

      I also made these my own after reading previous reviewers. I used a combination of fruit and nut medley for my 1 1/2 cups of dried fruits. Also added a 1/4 cup whey vanilla protein powder and 1/4 cup dry milk. Beefed up the whole wheat flour some and - from the white. Thanks Sharon. I've been meaning to make this for quite some time. I should mention too that I made and wrapped them individually for the freezer for easy snacking whenever. Made for Cook-Book Tag~
