Very Tasty. Next time I would add a little Splenda to add more sweetness (personal preference). They seemed a bit oily, so I'd play around with using less oil next time too.

I agree that one could cut back on the oil. It did seem a little oily to me too. But I liked them very much.

I'm wondering if applesauce could be used in place of the oil?

Great that it is only one point but they are oily if you use the full 1/3 cup. I read the comments and just used 1/4 and it was still too much so I added another 1/4 to 1/2 C of oats. Much better!

Very yummy...I added chopped dried apricots for extra sweetness and less oil as per comments from previous reviews and turned out great!

Sounds delicious but I don't see how the nutrition info could possible be correct. Bananas, dates and oats are all higher carb/sugar items not allowed on induction.

So delicious! I ended up doubling the recipe. Also used soaked date pieces & replaced half of the oil with the soaking liquid. Next time (and there will definitely be a next time), I may omit all oil and pop them in the dehydrator. Hmm...
