These are awesome! Super yummy oatmeal cookie base and amazing fudgy center. I made a 1/2 batch and cooked it in an 8x8 pan. It made nice, thick cookie bars. Definitely saving this recipe!
Awesome. My friend's mom used to make these! Reminded me of my childhood.
ellie...These are super...rich, chewy and a real treat! We loved them, especially BF who is a oatmeal cookie nut!! I made them without the nuts and I think that I only put in 2 cups of flour instead of 2 1/2 BUT that only made them more chewier and more oatmeal tasting. A word to the wise, make sure to use a 10x15 pan with about a 1 inch side as they dont run over the pan but they will come very very close if you just use a thinner pan. Mine is like a cookie sheet with smaller sides and I had to put a bigger sheet underneath them. The chocolate layer is to die for but it is soft and makes for spreading the oatmeal a little difficult. I just kinda globbed it on and then carefull spread it around. As long as you get enough topping in each cut piece they are fine, but if you dont you will have to eat them with a fork because you cant pick up only the chocolate. Sorry if this seems critical, dont mean for it to be as these truly are a quick and yummy bar cookie..Thanx ellie!
