    Hi Kevin. The bars sound wonderful. I’m getting ready to make a batch right now but I’m spotting a couple problems. You are saying to add the apple butter into the flour/oat mixture when I think you want to add the regular melted butter instead. Also, these are called cinnamon oatmeal bars but I don’t see any cinnamon listed in the ingredients. I’m thinking 1/2 or 1 teaspoon maybe added to flour/oat mix? I’m off to the kitchen and I’m sure these will be great, but you had me scratching my head for a couple minutes:-)

    I noticed the butter/apple butter mix up also. I think you’re right, Patty, the butter should be mixed in with the oat mixture and the apple butter spread over the crust (as shown in the picture). I think I’ll be making a batch this weekend!

    Hey Kevin,
    I think Patty & Barb are right, eh ? But this is not what you said in the recipe above….so are they right ?
    Can you please comment on this ? Thanks

      Sorry for those typos, I corrected them (and added cinnamon!)

    You need a little more tweaking on the recipe instructions.

    You have this
    “Coat an 8-inch by 8-inch baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. Line with heavy-duty foil, leaving an overhang on two sides to facilitate removal of bars from pan. Coat foil with cooking spray. ”

    There would be no need to spray the pan before adding Foil on top, that would be a waste.
