      I just made this recipe for a bike tour in my community. One slight problem I had was that the oat base spread in a 13X9-inch pan (you're supposed to use half of it) than put the other half on top of the spreadable fruit. Well, it didn't quite make the same amount to put on the top as it ook to thinly spread on the base of the pan. Also the edges became brown and hard before the middle and sides became golden and done. They were tasty when finished. . . a real 'healthy/pure' flavor. The recipe was pretty easy to make and called for simple/handy ingredients. Hopefully the bicyclists will gain energy and find them tasty tomorrow!

      I had the same problems as the others with the pan being too big. If anyone tries this, definitely use a smaller pan. This recipe really didn't work out for me. It was too dry as well, even though I added some milk. I followed the recipe, except I used a half cup instead of a whole cup of walnuts (and added the milk).

      Really tasty & wholesome! Just like a PB&J Sandwich, only better. I used a 9" x 9" square glass dish because there did not seem to be enough "batter" to make two layers with in the pan size that this called for. I realized that I only had 1/2 tsp. of vanilla left in my bottle, so I subbed the rest with almond extract which gave this a nice subtle flavor. I let them cool overnight and cut them this morning and there were a bit crumbly on the bottom, but this could be due to the fact that my bars are thicker. I think if the raspberry fruit got to seep through some of the oat mixture, it would help bind it together since it is a sticky substance. But then it might not have that perfect middle layer of fruit. These taste really great and I'd make them again.
