This turned out delicious! I only used about 1 tbsp. of honey and it was plenty sweet. I also placed them in an 8x8 pan and cut them into squares. Great recipe!

Loved this! My kids are both teenagers who love to snack and who love sweets. This was a great way to provide a healthy snack that they both really enjoy! I added coconut and replaced the fla...

Yes!! Fantastic recipie, just what I need for busy mornings. I also add 1/2 of a banana to keep everything together and make it a bit sweeter.

Love this!!

I loved the taste of everything together and how simple it was to make. Only thing i would change is to only use 1/2 cup of honey or like 1/3 of a cup more oats because it was a little sweet.

I make these every 2 weeks, and double it. My high energy teenage boys love them. I have passed this recipe on at least 6 times.

Too sweet! We added dried cranberries, chia seed and walnuts. Next time, we will reduce the honey to about half. I would consider adding puffed brown rice as a variation. Kids and I both loved...

I also added Chia Seeds to this also!

These were pretty good. I didn't have enough flaxseed, so I used oats to substitute. If you really want to make it healthy, omit the chocolate chips.
