Very bizarre bars there is no leavening agent so they don't rise at all and no fat good or otherwise. Just chewy squares...won't make again Read More

These are pretty good and a nice change of pace from the usual chocolate chip and oatmeal fare. I did not find that rolling them in confectioner's sugar did anything for the flavor so I didn't do that after the first one. Very easy and quick to make also. Thanks! Read More

Tasty but next time I'll omit the ground clove and use more cinnamon. I don't care for clove and so to me it overpowers the fig (and cinnamon). This baked for 30 mins. Read More

These bars are delicious. I didn't change a thing and the whole family loves them. Fairly light texture considering that they are chewy and crunchy too. The spices were just perfect. Read More
