    I was looking for a healthy oat bar, but either this is not what I'm looking for, or it's horrible. I twisted the recipe and added coconut and lots of cinnamon, but the texture is mushy and not easy to slice. There is wayy too much carrot, and I couldn't taste any banana or apple.  -  08 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These bars turned out better than expected! I followed the recipe aside from one thing: I replaced the chopped nuts with a half cup of creamy peanut butter, because I can’t eat pieces of nuts (dietary restrictions). I also drizzled them with a mixture of melted peanut butter and coconut oil when they cooled down a bit. I love addition of carrot and apple. The fruits and veggies stay slightly firm and give these bars tons of texture when mixed with rolled oats. I think replacing the chopped nuts with creamy peanut butter may have given these bars a slightly different texture. Mine were moist and almost brownie like. Lastly, my daughter and husband love them too! They’re a winner. I’ll definitely be making them again.  -  06 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Love this recipe, especially since you can play around with the recipe and add ingredients that fit your palate. I added 1/2 cup craisins with 4 extra spoonfuls of applesauce and sprinkled some cinnamon on top. Super good! Its diabetic friendly, easy to make, and a good grab'n'go breakfast without the extra oils and sugar.  -  04 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
