I have had this recipe for years and recently started making it after not finding any other oatmeal bars that were a nice combination of good nutrition and good flavor. Not overly sweet and fattening like a cookie, but not so ultra healthy they aren't appealing to kids. You can adapt the recipe, adding any dried fruit you like, use part whole wheat, add some ground flax, my 3 year old likes adding some mini chocolate chips on top. Can't argue with that! Great for breakfast or a afternoon snack.
