    Great healthy snack! I used the recipe as a good foundation to substitute my favorite add-ins. Very versatile. I used dates and almonds. Made this around the holidays so I added 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice to add another dimension of flavors. This recipe keeps me satisfied and less likely to indulge in unhealthy snacking.  -  24 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Lots of good stuff in here! Not your grab-n-go breakfast bar, but very moist from the bananas and loaded with flavor. The fresh blueberries held their shape pretty well in the bars, so they'll pop in your mouth. I used sunflower kernels instead of seeds (it's what I had on hand), but otherwise followed the recipe. In the future, I might try cutting back on the mashed banana a bit, maybe 1/4 cup, to see if that'll firm them up a bit because I'd prefer a bar that I don't have to eat with a fork (although some might say it's worth the effort!). I cut into 12 bars rather than 9, and I would make these again. Thanks for a new breakfast treat.  -  23 Aug 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    So Yummy! I made these for my toddler so I did some things differently. I did not use figs, and I used ground flax feed. I used frozen blueberries because that's what I had. I also added some chocolate chips on top. They are so delicious! Some one mentioned they made them into muffins, I think I might try them as mini muffins next time!  -  17 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
