    Krsi Sue's Note:

    Why did the bear cross the road? To eat Mommy's rhubarb said my son. This is an easy coffee cake that you will want to let cool completely before cutting into. If you like it more tart, or more sweet, just adjust the sugar amount to your liking. You may use Splenda in the place of sugar. I used my hands to mix up the crust as it makes quite a thick dough. Timing does not include cooling period.

      YUM!!! My mom shared "some" of her rhubarb and I can't come up with a enough ways to use it, so I tried this recipe. So glad I did. I made with one cup sugar and a half cup Splenda. For the topping, I used brown sugar. Delicious.

      This recipe sounds good, but it tastes even better. Froze some of the bars for later. Otherwise, we would have just eaten them all. I need a bigger rhubarb patch... (I replaced half the sugar with Splenda.)

      These were wonderful. While making them, by Father-In-Law wanted to know what the heck Rhubarb Bears were. I told him to be patient, and he will find out. Well, he just loved them, as did the rest of us. Yummmppy! Great easy and economical recipe - it doesn't get better than than! Thanks for posting, I will be making these again!!!!
