Blackberry Oatmeal Bars

I used the Raspberry Oatmeal Bars recipe out of The Best of Vegan Baking, but put my own twist on it of course.  When do I ever follow a recipe to a tee?

    These look delish! I'm always looking for granola bar type recipes. The last granola bars I made were quite tasty…but I practically broke a tooth when trying to bite into them!

    Yum! And I believe that most recipes are guidelines, yes? :) I get this from my Mom who never followed a recipe. I remember my brother asking her once why she couldn't just make a plain ole chocolate chip cookie!! LOL
