These were good. I used butter instead of crisco and cut out a little bit of the sugar and chocolate chips. I think I may try making them again with cinnamon and raisins (instead of choc chips).

This recipe is a favorite my my husband and I. It is so easy to make, and I usually have all the ingredients on hand. I don't put nuts in, just dark chocolate chunks. I like to freeze most of the batch and they are delicious and chewy straight out of the freezer.

Delicious. This recipe caught my eye when I saw the ingredients of oatmeal, nuts, chocolate chips, molasses and no white sugar. I'm always looking for recipes with oatmeal as my family does not like oatmeal as a cereal. I made half the recipe. Next time I'll be making the whole recipe and storing these gems in the freezer for breakfast or a snack. Thanks for posting this easy recipe. Those are the kind I love.

Very good! This is going into my recipe box. Made exactly as written except omitted the nuts. Thanks for sharing.

Very good! These go together easily and are so tasty! I had been looking for a recipe for chocolate chip coconut bars. I found one but it had no oil in it, and I hated to make it for fear it wouldn't turn out well. I found this one and just added a cup of shredded coconut in place of the mixed nuts. It was a big hit! Thanks for sharing!

Now this is a great recipe that certainly makes a lot of bars very easily! Loved that we could eat them warm right after baking and then the next day they are just as yummy more firmed up. I did not change anything but omitting the nuts this time around. Tagged & Made for Went to the Market Tag Game.

Very tasty, and so easy to make.
I cut the recipe in half and baked in a 9x13 for 30 minutes. We preferred it better when cooled completely. I especially loved the outer edges. Mmmm. Thanks for sharing Sharon.

Perfectly done! LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe! So much quicker than making cookies but all the same deliciousness....I will definitely be making these again. My only change was using butter instead of Crisco :-)

I had trouble getting this to cook evenly BUT I am pretty certain my oven is dying and it was still delicious although the edges were overcooked and the middle a little undercooked... The guys gobbled it up. Can't wait until I have a better oven! Thanks!

I used old-fashioned oats instead of quick cook and I think that was a mistake. Also didn't have molasses or corn syrup. Thought about just leaving it out but used Hershey's chocolate syrup. Can't have too much chocolate. Cooked 35 minutes at 350.
