not too bad, wouldnt have been a bad idea to cut the bars, then put back in oven on a tray

I do not want to use a banana, has anyone made it without the banana.

Big hit of blueberry flavor! Loved these.

I made a couple changes: skipped the chia seeds and didn't have the blueberry mixture sit very long, used 1/2 rolled oats and 1/2 steel cut oats, and didn't turn any of the oats into flour (too lazy!) the bars still turned out delicious. They have the consistency of a soft, chewy granola bar and are plenty sweet. I expected them to be more like a breakfast bar but to me it tastes good enough to qualify as a dessert bar! I might even use less maple syrup next time, and maybe add more blueberries because you can't go wrong with a thicker layer of blueberry sauce.

This recipe was incredible! Instead of maple syrup I used agave nectar, I'm sure it would have been even better if I used the maple syrup though. So yummy.
Turned out great! I made enough for 15 bars, put it in an 8x8 pan, and cut into 16 bars, and it turned out fine. I think it would’ve been a stretch to have filled the pan with enough dough for only 12. Tasted great? My family’s only qualm was they said they looked more sugary and flavorful then they actually were, but I thought they had plenty of flavor!

I unfortunately made some mistakes while I tried this haha. First of all, I blended all of my oats instead of half, and then I accidentally added too much vanilla extract! I'll know better for next time. Super fun to make!

Excellent and healthy
beautiful! I made the base alittle too thick not leaving enough for a good top but will definitely make it again!

This is great! Instead of using the 1/4 cup of maple syrup in the oat mixture, I used another banana and then sprinkled the top with some powdered stevia and it turned out plenty sweet. I also only waited a couple minutes for the chia seeds to soak up in the berry mixture instead of the hour. No issue with consistency. The texture is chewy and satisfying especially when warm.

I was actually expecting more of a crumbly texture but that actually doesnt make sense since it's just banana and oats. It's texture is more like that of a bread (for mine) to me, but the jam is pretty good. It's easy to make, convenient breakfast and snack, and most importantly, it's healthy! If you are to use parchment paper, I suggest greasing it or smth like that cos the bard sticked to the paper for mine

It was good, I was expecting more of a cobbler type taste and texture but it was thicker and chewy, more like a granola bar. Still, it was tasty and all the kids ate it up.
Turned out great!! I would just add more maple syrup in the oat mixture next time!

Very simple to make, just a make sure to prep the jam ahead of time, Delicious and healthy!! Will definitely make again!

So delicious. Used mixed berries. Will double berry jam next time.

These bars taste pretty good, could do with a little more blueberry to pat ration in my opinionZ overall, these were easy to make and tasted pretty good. Great to grab on the go!

Yum! I felt that I ran a bit short on the topping (even though I used a measuring cup...) I think next time I will add a bit more oats, and a touch of brown sugar (my family likes a bit of sweet) and cinnamon to make a bit more of a crumb topping. I love that this recipe uses chia seeds instead of corn starch for thickening the blueberries.
