Another great gift from Lora Brody. She says, "Crisp, buttery oatmeal bars with a thick, creamy chocolate and peanut-butter glaze, they're a specialty of this restaurant in Maine's Acadia National Park".

Excellent bars. I was looking for a sweet and salty bar and this was what I was looking for. I made half a recipe and added 1/4 c. peanut butter to the bar mixture plus 2/3 c. peanuts in place of some of the oats. I am having a hard time staying away from them.
