      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.

      These energy bars turned out fantastic. I did not experience any of the problems experienced by the first rater. They were soft, evenly baked, with plenty of oat/nut mixture for the top and bottom. I made this because my husband loves peanut butter and needs easy but healty things to snack on during the day. These worked out great and he likes it, so I'll be making it again. Also, used the blueberry jam I had in the fridge and it was not too sweet. Thank you!!

      This home made energy bar is easy to make and delicious. I used an combination of walnuts and hazelnuts. and instead of raspberry spreadable fruit I used raspberry jam, which I have had on hand, but I think any other jam would be good, too. I do not have the difficulties described before and the bars were evenly baked. I've wrapped them in aluminium foil and have had them as a snack at work or prior to my running training. They are great, because they are not sticky as commercial ones. They also can be eaten during training (my running group have tried them during our weekly training). My rating is based on the group members rating, which varied between 4 and 5 stars, but with more votes for 5 stars. But important: all wanted more. So, thanks for sharing this recipe.
