Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars Recipe

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I love these bars. They taste similar to a “no bake” cookie, minus the peanut butter and minus the somewhat off-putting texture of the no bake. Use the best quality chocolate that you can, and you will be glad you did! Good ingredients usually = good end-result. Bad ingredients never do.

Begin by creaming together the brown sugar and butter.

Add in egg and vanilla.

Mix until well combined.

In a different bowl combine the dry ingredients. Add slowly to the wet ingredients and press into a parchment lined 9x13 inch pan. Set aside.

Get 6oz of some decent chocolate.

Melt it with the sweetened condensed milk and butter in a double boiler.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the cookie mixture.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 12-18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
