    I just liked this one. It was ok, but I probably won't make it again. I don't think there was anything necessarily wrong with the recipe, more of a personal preference I usually don't mind whole wheat flour, and prefer it in order to try to be healthier, but I think it played a big part in why I didn't particularly care for the recipe.

    I always make banana or carrot cake, but I never thought of mixing them together! These bars were really good.

    Very nice and moist,tasty.Made it with sour cream and used the apricots that were soaking to make my Apricot Liqueur.
