Oh my, these are SOOOO good. Mine just came out of the oven 15 minutes ago, and I just couldn't wait to try them so I ate them warm. They are dense and chewy, and just like eating a Kashi bar, only they are homemade which I just love. I put mine in an 8 x 8 pan so they'd be a little thicker, and I used almond butter just to get rid of it. But now, I think I've found a use for almond butter:) Next time I will try it with peanut butter, and I'm certain it will be just as good. Thanks Cal for such a great bar!
