I am so sorry I made these bars!! My hubby & I ate the ENTIRE pan over the course of a weekend - I'm so ashamed - but they tasted so amazing! I only had 1 1/2 cups of oatmeal so I used that and increased the graham crumbs to 1 1/2 cups. I loved the sweet & salty together. I didn't bother chopping the peanuts so this recipe was very easy & quick to prepare. I'm sure these will be on my Christmas trays next year.
The pan is too big for the mixture. The batter didnt' occupy the whole sheet. IMPT: chill the bars (w/ frosting) or else the choclate/pnut butter top is wet and you'll make a mess slicing. These are Chewy bars, next time, i'll try only using chips for the frost on top instead of adding peanut butter, i think i tastes better with plain choclate frost. Thanks for this great and easy recipe.
My family says five star all the way!! I used mixed nuts instead of just peanuts, cause that's what I had, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I would suggest making these on parchment paper if using a non-stick pan, because they get very hard, and plastic cutting utensils won't work, so you'll have to use a real knife!
This recipe was very good. Chocolate, peanut butter, oats and nuts. What more could you want? Thanks for posting .
All I can say is chewy and wonderful, these are super bars! One of the best recipes for bars I have made yet! Oh yes, this recipe makes a ton of bars! Thank you.
