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]
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!
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
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!
