I made a few changes but liked basic recipe. I added 2 large scoops of vanilla protein powder. I also omitted the brown sugar and replaced it with 1/8 cup of honey. I replaced the half & half with 2% milk. Very good protein bar for breakfast or a snack! I cut them into 16 bars. Read More

This recipe was good. It was enough of a sweet treat to keep me away from really really bad treats. However I found the bars a little too spicy all I could taste was nutmeg. If I try it again I might reduce the amount of spice added and add some walnuts to balance the mushiness. Read More

These had good flavor but they are much more of a baked oatmeal than a pumpkin bar. The texture is chewy and not cakey at all because there is no flour. Don't expect a nice light cakey bar from this recipe. For what it is...a baked oatmeal type bar it is quite good and a nice healthy option for a snack or quick on the go breakfast. Read More

I made these today because I wanted a healthier version that I could make with the ingredients I had on hand. I followed the recipe except sub'd almond milk for half & half. I frosted them with a neufchatel cheese frosting (like cream cheese) and sprinkled some chopped ginger on top. They turned out sooo good. Very moist and not too sweet just how I like my desserts!

Good but not great-- added chia and protein powder so I could turn these into a serious grab-and-go breakfast and they're definitely good for that. Surprisingly moist so even though they're not an explosion of flavour it feels more like a decadent baked good than a usual dense (and disappointing) breakfast bar. Next time I'll probably add nuts dried fruit... and probably chocolate. Read More

Subbed milk in for the half and half and they turned out great. 15 minute prep? I think I could get it down to 3 minutes on a second try. This is not a dessert and I'm sad that other reviews cite lack of flavor, talk of adding chocolate chips, and then still go on to rate it below 5 stars. This is a solid pumpkin oatmeal bar/baked pumpkin oatmeal recipe that is great for breakfast or as a healthy snack. Read More

Great recipe but I only had old fashioned oats and skim milk. Still turned out awesome but took longer to cook 45 instead of the 25-30 Read More

Ok as a healthy snack but didn't love the consistency or flavour of these. Had to re-read the recipe several times to ensure I didn't miss anything as mine didn't turn out like others said. were flat and not 'chewy'. I switched half and half to soy milk and added a little oil to compensate. The grated orange zest I added boosted the flavour otherwise I think they would have been quite bland for my tastes.
