    I double-checked the recipe to make sure I followed instructions, and I did exactly, with the only exception being that I used quick oats rather than old-fashioned (didn't have any). I was surprised at the bland flavor. I think salted butter would have helped, as well as a little more sugar. I used a pint of pie filling; it was loaded with cherries, not labeled as "light" yet not that sweet. The bars were very crumbly, and my guests didn't take seconds. I agree that these are good for breakfast, as they are healthier than the average cookie, and not too sweet, but not for dessert, unless some modifications are made. Of course, it's not a bad idea to ease up on the sugar now and then...

    This turned out very good although I only had a 14 oz can of pie cherries. I boiled the juice with cornstarch & sugar til thickened. I also added a little vanilla to the crust mixture. I will be making this to take to work & for my grandkids. Thanks for the recipe!
