I made these bars. I did a slight variation when I found out I had no eggs so instead I used some oil in place of the egg. It came out just fine. I also couldn't decide if I wanted to use grape jelly or strawberry preserve so I split it in half and did both. Kids loved it . Would make it again. I think next time I would try it with chocolate and maybe some processed banana.
I love these bars. They are easy to make. I use strawberry all fruit. Yummmmmm This is a keeper.
This recipe is so good, I have tried several several types of jam and our favorite is Concord grape preserves. SOOOO good! Had NO trouble with the instructions. SO easy!
I made this recipe, doubling it, for a "mini" school reunion I attended over the weekend. I actually used some homemade cranberry jam/honey that I had made some time ago, the tartness of the cranberries made a perfect compliment to the peanut butter. Everyone raved about it and asked for the recipe so they can try it. I intend on making this receipe again and assume, for storing it for a good length of time, I can either refrigerate or freeze it. Thank you for publishing this recipe on your website....Carol W.
Undergoing Chemo and this is a great treat for my appetite. Has fruit, protein, and starch!!! Wonderful!! My husband is enjoying them too. I mixed several types of jam/preserves and added walnuts and creamy peanut butter since I cannot eat peanuts. Thanks for a great recipe!!!!
The recipe instructions do not make sense....

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
You know the old saying, “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream,” right? Well, ice cream is a favorite, but if there is any summertime sweet treat that I find to be scream-worthy , it is, hands down, the s’more. More ...
