    These are wonderful!! My husband and I like to take them to the gym and eat one after working out. They help refuel us and satisfy us until our next meal. I always use instant oats so that I don't have to let them soak for 30 minutes. I've tried both ways and can't tell the difference. - 6/5/08

  • I can't eat eggs so I substituted with a banana. Be sure to spray the muffin tins/papers well as these really stick. - 2/6/11

  • I made these with some extras including flaxseed, honey, cinnamon, regular brown sugar & a little extra applesauce & extra chocolate chips. Very good and very filling- I baked them for 18 minutes and they aren't overly chewy. - 5/31/08

  • These were really good. I often make dark chocolate (high fat!) brownies for my boyfriend, and he said these were almost as good. I would definitely make them again. - 3/11/08
