I've made these several times. I have tried variations on the main idea: Peanut Butter and jelly bars with fruit ice cream topping and melted peanut butter in place of the carmel and choc chips; and a oatmeal scotchy version with carmel butterscotch topping amd 1/2 butterscotch chips 1/2 heath toffee chips. I've also substituted some of the butter for yogurt. Seems to be an almost fail proof recipe!

I made these for Easter and did half with nuts half without. I subsitiuted some of the butter with applesauce and no one seemed to care as well as used less chocolate. Still very rich, but my mom requested them specially for a party this weekend. Making early and hoping I don't eat before it!

Love these!!!! I make them gluten free by using gf oats and gf oat flour. They come out great every time. Even my picky 8 y/o tried them and loved them, even requested I make them for her birthday. :-)
