packed brown sugar
semisweet chocolate chips
Great to make for an instant craving for something sweet. I tossed in some shredded coconut to the hot oat mixture and topped it with white chocolate chips mixed with the peanut butter instead of chocolate chips. If I had nuts on hand it would have been a 5 star for sure! It wasn't overly sweet for me.
Recipe was indeed VERY quick and easy. However I found them to be a bit too sweet (this is saying a lot! I've got a terrible sweet tooth, didn't think there was such a thing as "too sweet".) I may make them again, because they were so quick and easy, but next time I'll add a pinch of salt to the oatmeal mixture and maybe some crushed pretzels or chopped salted peanuts.
Thought these were a little too sweet. They were too hard if stored in the fridge and too soft if stored on the counter.
I love these and so does my son! They are a bit messy though, definately not a hiking bar. I think next time I will try to get the frosting on the inside so we can take it camping with us. Thanks for the great recipe!
these are delicious. I did not vary the recipe at all except for adding another 1/2 cup choc chips to the "frosting" and they turned out great. It was hard to wait for the oat mixture to cool (it takes a while) before putting on the frosting and then you have to wait for that to set as well, so I wouldn't exactly call this a quick fix for that reason, but it is such a simple recipe I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants an easy recipe to fix w/ ingredients you almost always have on hand...
there is something about the topping (pb & choc mixed together and refrigerated) that makes me lose control. i literally cannot eat just one and have to run a marathon to burn off the rest. BUT it's soo worth it! lol
Easy to make! I had to make these on the stove top, so was thankful for the description of "until bubbly" when cooking the bottom layer. I subbed cinnamon chips for the chocolate chips. These disappeared quickly. Great recipe!
Really easy and quick to make! I used chunky peanut butter and they turned out great =)
