    Made as an after school snack kids loved them and so did husband dead easy to make too xx  -  23 Sep 2010


    Yummy! Perfect for kids and very simple to make.  -  21 Sep 2012


    simple, cheap, healthy, tasty! i soaked the oats for a couple hours in warm water beforehand, because the first time i made this, the oats were still somewhat dry/uncooked. i also added some dried berries i had in the pantry (raisins, blueberries, cranberries) they really made a difference. without the dried fruit, i'd imagine this to be a bit bland. also replaced the butter with applesauce. much more moist. and i didn't have wheat germ so i left that out.  -  11 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
