  1. Delish❣ Thank you! A keeper! I’m wondering about the calories per bar. Can you recommend or direct me to a calorie counter?

    1. Yay! I’m so happy to hear it, Debbie! 🙂 I’ve used My Fitness Pal many times before, as they have a convenient app and both a user database of ingredients as well as the ability to create your own to use when calculating a recipe. I know a lot of people use Lose It as well. Hope this helps! 🙂

  2. These are super simple and delicious! I made a few modifications based on what I have on hand. I used creamy peanut butter & brown sugar. I added extra vanilla, some pumpkin pie spice, and mini chocolate chips. I did a combo of sunflower and pepita seed, and used dried cranberries as my fruit. I baked them in my small baking pan in the toaster oven for about 15 minutes. Love these!!

    1. Hi Deanna! I think that should work, just make sure to drain any excess moisture from the fruit by padding it mostly dry before folding it into the batter. This way you won’t end up making the bars too moist and gummy. I haven’t tried it before, so let me know how it turns out!

  3. Oh my goodness-she LOVED them and said they made her so happy! I was surprised at how much I liked them and yes-they May actually replace my old recipe. Thanks again for a winner!!!!

  4. These are AMAZING! I used almond flour instead of oat flour (because it was the gluten-free flour I had on hand), and I felt like it worked very well with the almonds and almond butter. I highly recommend using almond flour, especially if you already have it on hand! These turned out so well! Now, my only problem is not eating them all right away instead of eating one a day for the next week as planned! 🙂

    1. Woohoo! I’m so happy to hear it Pamela! . Love that it all worded out with the almond flour. . And I’ve totally been there with trying to keep from eating the whole tray in one sitting! .

  5. I double these recipes all the time and add an extra five minutes to the baking time. Isn’t Demeter the best?!!! I love these bars!!!!!! Also, I have substituted dried cherries for the cranberries, added chocolate chips and a bit of almond extract…to die for!!! These are so versatile.

    1. Aww you’re seriously too sweet Terri! . Love the addition of the dried cherries. So happy you enjoy the bars!
