  1. Is there a good substitue for the coconut oil and coconut palm sugar? I have digestive issues and anything derived from coconut is a trigger for me but these look so good, I would like to try them!

    1. Denise, It sounds like they were too dry and if you make them again, you should add more oil. Be sure to use the right kind of oats as well.

  2. Never heard of coconut palm suger, and I bet its expensive, ( get it at a health food store?) what else can you use instead that I have in my pantry. ?

    1. Anything from this list but if you use maple syrup or honey, add slightly less coconut oil or a little bit more flour to compensate for the wet sweetener substituting dry.

  3. These taste pretty good, not excellent. However, 5 points plus!?? I mean I can have a half cup of ice cream for 4 points or a small piece of cheesecake, and these portions are tiny! Might as well eat the regular stuff for that many points.

    1. Maegan, It’s a clean recipe with healthy ingredients which is so important for good health. In the end, it’s up to the
      individual which they prefer. Thanks! 🙂

  4. This recipe really puzzles me. Despite some doubts regarding a bar recipe with no liquid but coconut oil, I made it as directed. It is, in fact, very crumbly. To my taste, it has ingredients more apropos of a crumble topping than of a fruit bar. (After one serving for breakfast, which we enjoyed, but found a little too oily/unusual, we’ll be using the remainder as ice cream topping.) I can’t help but wonder if there’s a missing liquid ingredient like egg, milk, or water that would bind the flour and oats.

    1. Hi Angela, This was a contributor recipe so I was reluntant to change the ingredients. Because of your feedback, I decided to make the recipe. As you’ll see, I tweaked the ingredients. The recipe is so yummy! Please let us know if you decide to remake, would love your opinion. 🙂

  5. Thank you for tweaking the recipe, Gale. Before I remake it, I’m curious — did you find that the bars held together well, even with the oil (and the jam, sort of) still serving as the only binding agent? (By the way, my husband loved the first recipe — even though crumbly, and especially as an ice cream topping.)

    1. Angela, They did for me. I didn’t had an egg but that should be fine. You may then want to increase the flour to about 1 1/4 cups. Keep me posted. 🙂

    1. Jane, We haven’t tried freezing them yet, however, it is perfectly fine to freeze them, thaw in the fridge before serving.
