    HokiesMom's Note:

    This recipe has been handed down from my mom to me just recently. The original recipe was from my aunt's personal recipe collection. They freeze very well for make ahead treats. This recipe uses oats, chocolate chips and has a nice orange glaze that is poured over the top of the brownies once they are removed from the oven.

      The first time I made this, the glaze didn't turn out. I don't know if the sugar is supposed to be regular white sugar and cooked longer or if it is supposed to be confectioners sugar. Anyway, I picked off all the topping that was on it and made the citrus glaze from America's Test Kitchen. This is a fantastic bar when the glaze comes out right.

      These are delicious brownies. I liked the orange glaze on these brownies; it was a change from the typical brownies. They came out moist and with a great chocolate flavor!
