  1. I made these along side the peanut butter cupcakes last weekend for office birthday treats and I have to admit that I loved them so much more than the cupcakes!

    My most important tip: I didn’t have any corn syrup on hand, so I used honey instead and it made a very noticeable difference–the crisps smelled and tasted clearly of honey and I think it really rounded out the flavors very nicely. They have such a clean sweet honey-oaty flavor that I won’t even bother with the chocolate next time.

    They’re very crumbly, so I’m already having thoughts of making a batch and just pulverizing the whole thing as toppings for yogurt and such 🙂

  2. Mine were very crumbly, and I think the chocolate on top is the only thing holding them together. They all broke as I was cutting them and I only got one whole one to photograph. They are tasty though. I’m interested to hear how everyone else’s turned out. I love nearly anything with oats and brown sugar, but not sure if I’d make these again due to the breakage.

  3. Like I said, I loved these! I definitely suggest going with honey instead of corn syrup.

    Missy, I actually dropped the whole batch on the counter and while they certainly messy, the bars stayed intact for the most part. When I cut them, I did it right at the 20 minute mark and they were still a little soft, so maybe that’s key? Cutting them before they set too hard?

  4. I just returned from vacation. I made these to take with us. These are really good.

  5. Life’s been a bit nuts. I’m still cooking just not blogging too much. I made these last weekend and fell in love with them. Did anyone experiment with reducing the butter or sugar? It’s so much!
