The flavor and chewiness are good eaten straight from the oven. I did add peanut butter to mine and they were still very crumbly. Cold I couldn't eat them at all, the texture changed (and I love shredded wheat)and became unpalatable for me. Since I threw the whole batch out, I won't make them again - 11/10/10
Flavor and chewiness are great, but the texture is VERY crumbly, making for a messy but yummy snack. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract. I will make these again but will experiment with binders (maybe a second egg? or some peanut butter?) to make the bars hold together better. - 1/18/09
