I was skeptical about using oil instead of butter or shortening, but these turned out great! Crispy around the edges, but moist and chewy. Thanks!

These really are the best! I made them a couple weeks ago to send out in care packages for our soldiers overseas...they were great even four days later ( I saved a few...for research, lol) and got thank you notes praising them from the soldiers. Thanks for the recipe!!

What an easy, simple recipe!! My grandkids and I loved it!! Especially with a scoop of ice cream on top of the warm bars. I added 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. ginger and 1/4 t. cloves for a spicy bar. Thanks for posting!!
