  1. These were delicious! I made in an 11x7 pan which made them a bit thicker, so had to cook a little longer. Made using homemade strawberry freezer jam. I it quite sweet, but delicious warm out of the oven with a glass of milk! Thanks for posting. Made for I recommend Tag game.
  2. These were moist and they looked great, but they weren't sweet enough for my tastes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  3. Absolutely wonderful, but then we love the combo of peanut butter & jam! Used extra chunky PB along with a very fruity strawberry jam &, as others have said, or at least indicated, these are definitely addictive, & the recipe is certainly a keeper! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Cookbook Tag]
  4. I just made these up tonight & they are quite good! In fact, we can't seem to stay out of them! I did make some adjustments to make them a little more diet friendly. I used whole wheat flour, egg sub, a 3-1 Splenda-Sugar combo, Splenda brown sugar, no sugar added jelly, and fat free half & half since that's what I had on hand. I also used half Better'n Peanut Butter & half Jif creamy. What's crazy is that I cut these up into 15 bars and then calculated the points... anywhere from 10-15 bars all equals 2 points with my adjustments & brands! That is awesome! These are really good & I am a peanut butter addict! Even better is that I can easily adjust this when I'm having chocolate cravings by replacing the jelly with some chocolate! Thank you so much for this delicious & versatile recipe!
  5. This was an absolute delicious oatmeal bar recipe. Was real quick to put together too. I had used my own homemade strawberry kiwi jam. I loved the mixed flavor of these. I would definitely be making these again. I thank you Rita and my DD thanks you for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for the Think Pink Tag Oct '09


  1. These are finger food for a one year old who eats anything- WAY too much sugar using the original recipe. I pumped up the strawberries (real not jam) and used half quinoa flour to regular. Obviously, who cares how they taste to big people- he loves them!
  2. I thought these were wonderful. I baked them for a class breakfast and they were a hearty treat. I replaced the flour with rye flour (for someone who is wheat allergic) and the milk with water (because someone else is milk allergic and I had no soy milk on hand). I also used fresh berries instead of jam. If I did it again, I would have added sugar to the berries and maybe tried apple sauce instead of milk/soy. As a whole, though, these were just so yummy and everyone in the class was very happy!
