    I made this subbing in similar ingredients when I didn't have the exact (eg LSA for Flaxmeal). I found it really dry. I think I will add a couple of TSP oil next time to moisten it up a little. - 6/25/12

    I added 2 tablespoons of low fat margarine to this receipe to make it stick together. I put it into a jelly roll pan and baked it the required time and drizzled confectioners sugar mixed with a little water on top and cut it into 24 bars. I estimate the calories at 120 for each bar. - 8/19/11

  • I used two very ripe bananas instead of apple sauce and omitted the honey and protein powder (adding coconut oil). Oh, and I threw in chocolate chips because I have to have them. ha! - 7/5/11

  • I substituted 1.5c of Fiber One cereal (slightly crushed) for 1.5c of the oats. I also added 4 tbs. of peanut butter and reduced the brown sugar. - 4/1/11

  • Very good, great flavor! I didn't have applesauce on hand so I ground up one apple in the food processor instead, and that worked great! - 1/30/11

    Can I make this without the protein powder?
    Could I use cottage cheese instead? - 11/27/09

  • Very easy and yummy! I split into 24 servings so each bar was under 100 calories for easier tracking. Very delicious - thanks for the recipe! - 11/16/09
