Oh, man! These were so delicious, and simple too. I had a houseful of kids over and needed a simple and quick snack. This fit the bill, and I also like that it uses all oatmeal and no flour. Considering how easy and fast it was, I figured if it was tasty at all it would be a keeper. But when I bit into it--wow! It was delicious! It's now one of my favorite desserts. The kids liked it too. Very sweet and chewy. I almost wish I didn't find this recipe, because I can see it contributing to the spread of my waistline! These are the minor changes I made. I doubled the recipe and added a pinch of salt and a little cinnamon. I omitted the almonds and put it in a well-greased 9"x13" pan and baked for about 25 minutes. To make this recipe a little healthier, like for a breakfast bar, I might leave the chocolate chips off next time, throw in some raisins and perhaps substitute some honey for the brown sugar. I could probably reduce the sugar to about 3/4 cup and it would still be plenty sweet. (Edited to add: If you find the bars too crumbly, boil the butter/sugar mixture for about a minute before adding the oatmeal.)
Not terrible but would I make this again? Ya but I think it would be better if some dried fruit or other nuts were added to it. Maybe try honey instead of brown sugar, so it doesn't crumble so easily.
Yum these are great! Yes a bit crumbly, but delicious. I left out the almonds and subbed dried cranberries, you could put in almost anything and they would be great.
What a tasty, simple recipe! I made it a bit healthier by substituting almond butter in place of regular butter and 1/4 cup cocoa mixed into to batter in place of the cocolate chips. I didn't need to boil the butter and sugar but just mixed them together.
These are so easy to make and easy to adapt to your own tastes. To make it healthier I used half of the butter and half applesauce, less brown sugar and added honey, and I used less choc chips and added raisins. I also threw in a little cocoa powder. They turned out delicious!
These are delicious, and very easy. I baked them in greased mini-muffin tins. They did get quite hard and crumbly once cooled, but the crumbs made an awesome yogurt topping! Instead of 2c oatmeal, I used 1 1/2c oatmeal, 1/4c coconut and 1/4c finely-chopped pecans and left out the almonds.
Fast, easy, and delicious. They are a bit crumbly, even if you boil the caramel mixture for a few minutes, but it's ok. Just be sure to cut into very small squares, since they're incredibly rich!
