Top Review by Sydney Mike

Followed your recipe & thoroughly enjoyed the combo of fruits in these bars! Much appreciated this unusual way of putting bars together, but believe me, I'll be making these again & again, for sure! This 1st time around I kept 4 of them here for us to enjoy, while the rest were shared at a weekly meeting my other half attends! Thanks much for posting this recipe!
