    After reading the other review I decided to adjust the flour and oats. I used 1 cup oats and 1 1/4 cup flour and that still didn't help with the texture of these. The flour-oat mixture never did set. It stayed crumbly and fell apart when removing from the pan. Nothing like a bar. The flavor was very good though.

    I was a little worried about the amount of flour and oats vs. the margarine and sugar, but I always hate to tamper with a recipe the first time I make it. This time I wish I had. The margarine/sugar/flour mixture mixes up kind of like sand, and it stays that way. Eating the finished product is like oats and applesauce mixed with sweet sand. At first I was going to suggest cutting down the amount of flour and oats, but then I realized that would be making it into essentially an apple crisp. In fact, rather than bars, it is more like an apple crisp with waaay too much flour. I did use my neighbor's homemade applesauce, which is very chunky, rather than canned applesauce, but I can't imagine that even canned sauce would absorb into the flour/oats mixture to make the texture acceptable on these. It sounded like a good idea, but--at least for me--it just didn't come out.
