Your recipe was so beautiful and so adictive! I made it crunchy and non sticky by not adding as much butter and adding some bran too! Read More

Found these easy to make and really enjoyed the nutty taste and texture. I read how some of the reviewers found it too sticky so I let it boil a bit longer then suggested to make it harden more. It was a bit greasy when first out of the oven but when somewhat cooled cut them up and put in a container. The next day they were hard without being too hard. Perfect. Also used "Trail Mix" (mixture of nuts-eg. peanuts sunflower seeds pumpkin seeds almonds etc.) instead of hazelnuts and thought this worked really well. Will definitely make these again!! Read More

Well they did turn out OK. I modified it a little. Used a commercially prepared muesli mix and added 1/2 cup of self-raising flour. Turned out OK. Reduced the amount of honey to 1 tbs. This in a way reduced the stickiness. Refrigeration is a must for this bars. In the humid tropical heat here they became very soft and attracted insects of every kind. First the ants came then the fruit flies then finally the spiders who came and ate up the earlier insects:) I used airtight bags to carry them around. Read More

Wonderful and completely addictive. I followed the recipe exactly except I made them in an 8x8 pan. I didn't find them too sticky. They were easy to make fast relatively health and absolutely delicious. Read More

Excellent recipe! I have to agree they are addictive! I added dried cranberries to the recipe which added some colour and great flavour. Other dried fruit would work well too. I would try to decrease the butter next time as I found them a bit greasy but not sticky. I would also experiment with maybe more nuts and coconut as opposed to the sesame to change the flavour up a bit. Thanks for this one! Read More

I spread the misture out thinly onto a rectangle cookie sheet and they came out SO nicely. They were thin and crispy. Instead of the nuts and seeds we used a whole cup of coconut. My daughter 8 loved them so much that she hoarded half of the pan to her grandma's house. Read More

Quite a nice tasting bar I did cut down on the sesame seeds as I am not a big fan. Added chopped dried mango dried plums and currents to give it a little bit more taste and texture. Wrapped them up in clear wrap for my husbands work colleagues. They were a little greasy like a few other cooks mentioned. I cooled in the fridge for 30 minutes before cutting then placed on a paper towel to absorb an extra grease. I cooked mine for the minimum amount of time and pulled them out at the right time any longer and they would have been burnt on the bottom. Read More
