    Soo good. It makes a small amount, so I’ll likely double the oat mixture next time. (:

    Weirdly chewy and bland... not sure what went wrong. Used honey instead of maple syrup. Might be the problem. Still good.

    It went out a little loose, but it might be because of bananas. Overall it is tasty but too sweet.

    Lovely!! A great option for a healthy dessert or breakfast : )

    I added 3 table spoons of almond flour to thicken the dough more, and broiled for the last 5 minutes of cooking to create a crispier crust. They turned out perfect! But the recipe seemed to make quite a bit less than 12 servings

    Very good - i ended up wanting a bit more of the oat mixture for covering but not a huge problem. Teen boys finished the pan in 1 day.

    Texture was very chewy - not my favorite will not be making again

    turned out great! used a loaf pan and it was enough to cover top. love the banana taste that comes through. didn't make the blueberry jam as we had homemade cherry jam from my mother in law. baked alot longer than the recipe suggested, until it turned brown and crispy both on top and at the bottom. that's what made the texture good!

    imo there should be more batter to spread on the top layer, made twice and never have enough for the whole surface. Amazing healthy snack, and tastes just as good without maple syrup!!

    it was good, but needed a little more sweetness.

    Okay! Tastes very "healthy" like Life cereal. Maybe I will make again.

    Really convenient, easy recipe. Next time i make these i would definitely use 3 bananas and 3 cups of oats, as a the suggested size proved too little to coat the top evenly. Otherwise perfect

    It was pretty tasty. I always modify. sorry if it was more oh natural before...but I like it sweeter so I added a mixture of oats/flour/butter/brownsugar to the top more like my Mom's crumb cake and I feel it needed the sweet. FYI its very cumbersome having to scroll through an entire long article just to get to the recipe...but I liked this dessert so do recommend it. The bananas were a yummy added twist to similar recipes Ive seen in the past.

    Ended up needing more of the dough part to cover the whole top but it turned out really well either way

    the banana on the bottom.makes them soggy and dense. looking for more a crispy texture

    Turned out pretty good. I used the food processor for my bananas because I thought mashing then by hand would be too chunky. It made it a little wet. I like the flavor, but the texture is off to me. Reminds me of a Nutri Grain bar. Kinda dense and chewy. Might try strawberry next time for more flavor and tweak the recipe a bit.

    Turned out great! Added a tiny bit of brown sugar to the top since other reviews mentioned it was a bit bland and needed sweetener. Came out really good.

    I thought this was pretty good! However I would spray the pan with some kind of oil as the bar’s stuck a bit to the parchment paper.

    Turned out really great! I halved the recipe and used a loaf pan. I let the jam sit and cool for about an hour before I used it.

    I am not very good at cooking but I was surprised with the outcome. Thanks for making it easy for those of us who struggle in the kitchen.

    Bland. If I make them again, I'll probably add some honey or extra syrup.
    Amy 7 months ago
    It was okay. Nothing wrong with the bars just not bursting with flavor. The bars are edible but just a little bland for me. Will probably not make these again.

    Very moist and yummy! If I had to find a complaint I would say they lack a little flavor. Next time I’ll try a mixed berry version!
