    Oh, man! These were so delicious, and simple too. I had a houseful of kids over and needed a simple and quick snack. This fit the bill, and I also like that it uses all oatmeal and no flour. Considering how easy and fast it was, I figured if it was tasty at all it would be a keeper. But when I bit into it--wow! It was delicious! It's now one of my favorite desserts. The kids liked it too. Very sweet and chewy. I almost wish I didn't find this recipe, because I can see it contributing to the spread of my waistline! These are the minor changes I made. I doubled the recipe and added a pinch of salt and a little cinnamon. I omitted the almonds and put it in a well-greased 9"x13" pan and baked for about 25 minutes. To make this recipe a little healthier, like for a breakfast bar, I might leave the chocolate chips off next time, throw in some raisins and perhaps substitute some honey for the brown sugar. I could probably reduce the sugar to about 3/4 cup and it would still be plenty sweet. (Edited to add: If you find the bars too crumbly, boil the butter/sugar mixture for about a minute before adding the oatmeal.)  -  10 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yum these are great! Yes a bit crumbly, but delicious. I left out the almonds and subbed dried cranberries, you could put in almost anything and they would be great.  -  25 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
