This is great!! I was able to lower the calories to 162 for 1/12th instead of 153.7 for 1/24th (I like to be able to eat more!!) by using Splenda sugar blend instead of the sugar, and EggBeaters in place of the eggs. They are fabulous and even my daughter loves them! - 3/4/09
I'd like to try these too. I think I would try a 9"x13" pan as that would probably make 24 decent bars. Because we have to watch cholesterol,(& oatmeal is good) I would try switching the butter to a non hydroginated Margerine & maybe use an egg substitute or 1/2 egg whites instead of all the eggs - 3/4/09
What size pan do you use if you make bars? Do you make them into cookies and if you do, do you bake them in a cookie sheet or is this something you'd put into a muffin tin? I'd like to try them, they sound good. - 3/4/09

i usually just make them into cookies and use an ice cream scoop to get the amount out I want for each one. I've used a muffin tin but we like them better the other way.
