      These were just delicious and satisfying. Pecan pie or squares are something I rarely enjoy (too many points) but with these I got to satisfy my sweet tooth and not feel guilty. The cookie crust is nice and tender (better than most in low fat bars) and the top is a little gooey with that nice crunchy top. Yummmmmmm. I made these as directed with one small addition - toasting the oats and nuts for about 5 minutes before making the topping. This brings out the the nuttiness of both just a bit. Thanks.

      Really liked these! The crust was a little tough, but maybe I worked it too much? The flavor was great...taste alot like pecan pie. I didn't have enough pecans, so I use 1/2 pecans and 1/2 walnuts...still tasted great. I also used dry powdered buttermilk instead of the reg. dry milk powder because it's what I had on hand. I will definitely make these again. Thanks!

      Delicious! Couldn't tell they were healthier version! I was trying to find a use for egg whites I had leftover from key lime pie and stumbled on this recipe! Glad I did! Although I accidentally used 5 egg whites and the full egg...it did taste a little eggy because of my mistake, but still great! Will become a go to recipe to use up those egg whites!!! Thanks!
