    Not actually a review, but a question. I rated this based on how the ingredients sound. Does anyone know how important it is to use gluten free oats? I have regular, old fashioned rolled oats and we have no gluten problems.

      Oats are fair game, the reason they specify gluten free oats is probably just a reminder that not all brands are 100% gluten free, there's a chance of cross contamination of the factory also produces gluten products. So, if you happen to have a high gluten sensitivity it's important to look for oats packaged by an entirely gluten free facility. Also, for those complaining of crumbly bars, it's important to note that all gluten free baked goods require time to cool in order to solidify. I imagine it's because it lacks gluten and because whatever replacement grain you use swells when heated.

    Love the ingredients, but after baking and cooling it fell apart when I tried to cut the mixture into squares. I can use it with yogurt as a snack, or to top a crumble, but does not adhere into solid bars.

    I really liked them, but they really needed to cool completely or they fell apart. Otherwise, they're absolutely awesome. We've even changed up the additions to include goji berries, cranberries or blueberries with the dates--or a little shredded coconut.

    I really liked this, but for me it was a bit addicting so I probably won't make it again because I ate too much.
