    I'm having a love affair with oatmeal right now! This turned out a bit more cake-y than I expected but it tastes great and is still plenty chewy. I added dried cranberries and dried cherries. Great as a breakfast bar, dessert and cookie.

    These have good flavor and not too sweet and healthy to boot. I did use Splenda for the white sugar. I baked for 32 min. and that was too much. Next time I will only leave in for 28 or maybe even less. They stuck to the bottom of the pan but I was able to loosen them with a spatula. I think I will spray with Pam next time.

    We really liked these. I used Splenda instead of sugar, 1 egg instead of 2 egg whites and canola oil instead of vegetable. Followed the rest of the recipe as written. I added one cup of dried blueberries. I'm glad I checked mine while cooking. I set the oven for 28 minutes but checked at 24 minutes and they wer pretty brown. They had a really good taste to them. Just enough sweetness. Will be making them again.

    Very very good, fast, and easy. Made a few changes because I think I'm not biologically capable of following a recipe exactly...Added some extra spices (cloves, nutmeg, allspice); used whole eggs because I'm too lazy to separate them (at least I'm honest!); used 3 Tbsp of unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil. Followed another reviewer's comment and used whole wheat flour. Normally I make very healthy low fat muffins for the hubs, I tried this for a change and it's a winner. Also much easier to clean a 9x13 pan compared to muffin tins! Thanks for posting. Mary

    Loved it! I substituted whole wheat flour, splenda brand, brown sugar mix, and natural peanut butter for the oil, I used no refined sugar, it was sweet enough with just the vanilla yogurt.

    Tasty, especially for being low fat. I am eating my 3rd piece right now. Used a glass pan and didn't have any problems with them sticking. Used one whole egg instead of the whites, and used golden raisins for the fruit. Also used plain fat-free yogurt. Mine were perfect in 28 min.

<p><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;>Come and visit me on my blog:&nbsp; </span></strong></p> <p><a href=http://www.miriyummy.wordpress.com><strong><span style=color: #ff0000;>www.miriyummy.wordpress.com</span></strong></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>October 2011: It's been 10 years since I came into Zaar one day at the recommendation of someone on another website. If you ask my husband (or my coworkers), I haven't logged out since! <br /><br /><a href=http://www.TickerFactory.com/><br /><img src=http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;15;0/st/20011021/e/I Joined Zaar%21/dt/6/k/f656/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />So what's happened in the ten years since I became addicted to Zaar? Well, I've been happily married, happily divorced, and happily married once again. (Wanna see wedding pictures? Click <a href=http://community.webshots.com/user/mirjamdorn>here</a>.) <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=chuppah2.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/chuppah2.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Originally from the Bronx, I've been living in Israel since 1983. I'm married to a brilliant man with the most yummy British accent (this is the part where he rolls his eyes and says, Yeah, yeah, yeah). Let's call him Sushiman, even though he hates that name. <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/member/52282>Chia</a> gave him that nickname when I was trying to create a dinner to show off my culinary talents. I posted here on Zaar with questions about the menu and since sushi was the main focus of the meal, he became Sushiman. That dinner was just the first of what I hope will become a lifetime of meals together. <br /><br />This is a picture of us taken in September 2005 in Kew Gardens in London. It my favorite picture of the two of us. <br /><br /><a href=http://photobucket.com/ target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/Kew.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></a> <br /><br />This comes in as a close second, taken March 2009: <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=Wedding6.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/Wedding6.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />I have 4 of the most gorgeous daughters in the known universe (tfu, tfu, tfu, that's me spitting three times to ward off the Evil Eye). Sushiman has 4 kids of his own, so together that makes us a family of ten, together with my dog and my step-dog (sadly, since I first wrote this my step-dog, Honey, crossed the Rainbow Bridge). We're the Brady Bunch on speed. Not all eight live with us, but everyone is in and out all of the time, so we're thinking about replacing our front door with one of those revolving thingies.</p> <p>If you need help figuring out the whole complicated mess, you can check out <a title=Miriyummy -- A Guide to the Perplexed href=http://miriyummy.wordpress.com/about/ target=_blank>Miriyummy, A Guide to the Perplexed</a>.</p> <p>Here are my four beauties -- from left to right: Adiya, Sara, Nomi and Tehila <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=111.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/111.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />On March 18, 2009, my oldest, Sara, got married to Ariel. The wedding was a clash of cultures and traditions, and we had a blast! <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=171.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/171.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Over 500 people attended our little party... <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=237.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/237.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />... and Ariel was welcomed into our family in style! <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=225.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/225.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />If you want to see the photo album from Sara and Ariel's wedding, just go <a href=http://family.webshots.com/album/571020179JBDlvf?vhost=family&amp;vhost=family&amp;action=refreshPhotos&amp;albumID=571020179&amp;security=JBDlvf>here</a>. <br /><br />We're just one big happy family, most of the time, really! <br /><br /><a href=http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/?action=view?t=098.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v240/mirj/098.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Here on Recipezaar I am the host of the <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=29>Kosher &amp; Jewish Cooking forum</a>. Come on in, and let the Jewish Mothers of Zaar feed you senseless! <br /><br />I hope you enjoy my recipes. I have only posted recipes of food that I am willing to eat myself. Therefore, you won't find anything unkosher in my recipes. You won't find any stinky bleu cheese or goat's cheese either. You will find a lot of comfort food, I believe that comfort food is very important. <br /><br />Gay and Troy are always thanking us for making Recipezaar such a great place. I firmly believe that it's Gay and Troy themselves that deserve a multitude of thanks, from us! And I hope I live up to their expectations! <br /><br /><strong>Miscellaneous Stuff</strong> <br /><br /><a href=http://www.TickerFactory.com/><br /><img src=http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/4;10300;6/st/20050624/e/Since We Tied The Knot/dt/7/k/f6c1/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />&nbsp;<a href=http://www.shinystat.com target=_top><br /><img src=http://www.shinystat.com/cgi-bin/shinystat.cgi?USER=Mirj border=0 alt=Free website counter /></a> <br /><br />What time is it in Ra'anana? <br /> <object width=300 height=25 data=http://www.clocklink.com/clocks/5001-red.swf?TimeZone=IST&amp;Place=&amp;DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY&amp; type=application/x-shockwave-flash> <param name=data value=http://www.clocklink.com/clocks/5001-red.swf?TimeZone=IST&amp;Place=&amp;DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY&amp; /> <param name=src value=http://www.clocklink.com/clocks/5001-red.swf?TimeZone=IST&amp;Place=&amp;DateFormat=DD-mm-YYYY&amp; /> <param name=wmode value=transparent /> </object> <br /><br /><a href=http://www.wunderground.com/global/stations/40180.html?bannertypeclick=miniWeather2><br /><img src=http://banners.wunderground.com/weathersticker/miniWeather2_both_cond/language/www/global/stations/40180.gif border=0 alt= /><br /></a></p>
