Delicious flavor but a bit dry. FYI I substituted 1/3 c molasses for syrup and concentrate, and used 1/4 c. gr. flax seed (instead of 1/2) and 3/4 c sliced almonds (instead of 1/2 soy nuts).

The dryness is an easy fix. Just use 1/4C butter and 1/4C applesauce, rather than 1/2C butter. They turn out nice and moist that way.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! The only change I made was to substitute dried cranberries for the raisins. I will be making these on a regular basis.

This recipe was a great starting point for making delicious healthy bars. Instead of butter, I used Sunbutter. Instead of sugar I used Stevia (2 teaspoons) Instead of corn syrup, I used honey....

these were good! They were actually quite moist... perhaps it's because I used a type of butter made from olive oil. I substituted molasses for the apple juice, and used white cane sugar inste...

My family absolutely loved these and they were easy to make.
