Not something I'll bake again. It's reminds me of a very dry granola bar.

So easy for a quick treat when you haven't many ingredients. Did take a lot longer in the oven though! I added raisins to mine. Tried it with golden syrup another time: Amazing!!!

This was a waste of my time, energy and money. I think the recipe was not complete.

This is great as crust. but a light crust. apple,pear,peach,crisp.

Easy, quick tasty. I added cornflakes, nuts, raisins etc and they were great muesli bars!
