      Absolutely delicious! The flavor and texture of these bars reminded me of the chocolate chip pies that were commonly on restaurant menus during the 80s. Yum! My entire family loved these. We'll be enjoying this recipe again. Made for Top Favorites of 2009 game :)

      Tagged in Kid Friendly tag. Made it and it was gone in an hour! I did step 1 in the micro for 1 minute. Recipe didn't say how big of a pan, so I used a glass square 8". The dough is sticky, so putting the extra oats and butter in won't make it crumbly. You just spread it over best you can. Turned out really great! My 9yo wanted to make it again today, LOL! UPDATE: We cannot make this anymore, due to gluten/dairy allergies, however it is so good, this made it into my Top Fav's of 2009 cookbook. Original Review 2-7-09.

      Very easy to make in a pinch. Make sure they cool fully. Much better flavor once they are cold.
