This recipe is good, but it needs an egg to bind it and a half-teaspoon or so of salt. Adding the salt will cure the "bland" flavor other reviewers have complained of. I also added chocolate chips.


This is my new favorite bar recipe. I used whole wheat flour, raisins instead of walnuts and doubled the applesauce (unsweetened). So yummy!

Pan size too small?? Are we making the same recipe? The first time I made this recipe I followed it to the "t" and it worked out great. I think the butter has to be creamed thoroughly or you might run into problems with the dry ingredients. The kids really enjoyed it so I made it again and this time, I stirred in raisins and chocolate chips. Even better! A great after school snack. Very much like a gronola bar so I cut the bars bigger. I think this is going to be a great recipe to add different ingredients and experiment with the flavors.
