I really liked how these turned out. Next time I might add some chocolate chips or peanut butter. I ended up using 2 cups of brown sugar since I ran out of white sugar.

These are good, we're happy w/ them! We played around w/ the flour type and so it's not totally fair to rate them if I changed something. But I'd make these again, add raisins perhaps? Thank you!

Quite easy to make, though the creaming of butter and sugar is work. I added some craisins and chocolate chips, and it was still a little bland for me, which is why it only gets 4 stars. My guests loved it, though!

To give credit where due, this is the exact recipe on the lid of the Quaker oats package. I agree it is excellent. I always add a cup of chocolate chips to the mix and the whole batch disappears.

Loved these. I followed the recipe as written other then I used Splenda instead of regular sugar. These were so good. We ate them hot and cold and they were delicious both ways. I also froze some for future use. We will definately be making these more often. Mine only took about 20 minutes to cook in my oven. They smelled wonderful while cooked and tasted wonderful too!

These bars are delicious. I topped them with a few mini chocolate chips. Very good!!

Great recipe! Kind of like a chewy granola bar with just the right amount of spice. They turn out pretty thick in a 9 x 13 pan--you could probably also do them in a jelly roll pan to get thinner cookie-like bars. Thanks for the great recipe! We will definately make this again.

This is a great recipe. I have used canola oil in place of the butter, and I have been without brown sugar and substituted white, used artificial sweetener, etc. and it always turns out good!
