The dryness is an easy fix. Just use 1/4C butter and 1/4C applesauce, rather than 1/2C butter. They turn out nice and moist that way.

Delicious flavor but a bit dry. FYI I substituted 1/3 c molasses for syrup and concentrate, and used 1/4 c. gr. flax seed (instead of 1/2) and 3/4 c sliced almonds (instead of 1/2 soy nuts).

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! The only change I made was to substitute dried cranberries for the raisins. I will be making these on a regular basis.

This recipe was a great starting point for making delicious healthy bars. Instead of butter, I used Sunbutter. Instead of sugar I used Stevia (2 teaspoons) Instead of corn syrup, I used honey. Instead of ground coconut, gluten and oats, I used homemade muesli. Instead of wheat flour, I used coconut flour (2 tablespoons). Instead of soy nuts, I used a mixture of crushed hazelnuts and almonds. Instead of all flax seed, I used half flax seeds and half chia seeds. Instead of apple juice, I used fresh squeezed orange juice. The whole family thought they were delicious.

these were good! They were actually quite moist... perhaps it's because I used a type of butter made from olive oil. I substituted molasses for the apple juice, and used white cane sugar instead of brown. I also left out the coconut powder and ground the flax. I didn't have any gluten, so I omitted that as well. Almonds replaced the soy nuts... and were wonderful! These are not too sweet, but could use something... maybe something tangy... Thanks for sharing!!!
