    I liked this recipe because it is so basic and flexible -- I didn't have applesauce so I used canned pumpkin and it worked great! I added some crushed walnuts and craisins, and my husband loved them!! He brought them in to work and his coworkers are now asking for this recipe! Thanks! - 1/6/10

    I used craisins and unsalted almonds as my add in and it was really yummy. They are quite filling and taste sort of like oatmeal cookies. Will make again! - 2/15/09

    I loved these (as did the husband). I think next time I'll add a little shredded coconut along with the craisins (so, 1/2 cup of each). Or, if I'm feeling particularly sinful, instead of the regular additional ingredients, I'll add some orange zest and dip the bottom of the bars in dark chocolate. - 1/3/10

    Excellent recipe. My family and I loved these healthy bars. I don't plan on purchasing granola/cereal bars any more from the store. These were simple to make, and I like knowing EXACTLY what's in the foods I eat. - 5/23/09
