"These are wonderful, chewy 'brownies' except that they are made with oatmeal instead of chocolate. Add your favorites (nuts, chocolate chips, chocolate candies, toffee chips) and create a truly delicious snack." — Milly Suazo

Even though in the recipe I say to add your choice of ingredients... (choc chips, nuts, raisins, toffee bits, etc.) the truth is that I personally prefer them with NOTHING. I love to eat them in the morning with a nice cup of creamy latte or cappuccino. That way I can enjoy the flavor of the oatmeal.... YUMMMM
I am very happy you are enjoying my recipe and thanks to everyone for posting a review!!!
They were okay. Even with semisweet chocolate chips and macadamia nuts they were a little bland. Maybe better with dried fruit pieces?
So good it makes you want to say it with your mouth full! I halved the recipe, used an 8X8 pan, added some pecans and some milk chocolate chips. I didn't over do it though because I really wanted to taste the oatmeal in them, which I love. I predict my husband and I will *magically* make them dissapear in the next two hours. Thanks Milly!
The bars are baking right now but I just had to comment that the batter itself was great. I actually just added some ginger powder and semisweet chocolate chips. I think it will be a winner.
Thank you for the recipe!
These are amazing! So quick and easy to throw together and wonderfully moist and chewy. I added milk chocolate chips, no nuts or raisins since they were made for a function and I was worried about nut allergies and raisin haters! I left only one on the table for my hubby and he was ticked that's all he got! Excellent. Addendum: I made these again today, and once again they deserve 5 stars! This time I put in a handful of chopped walnuts and some mini chocolate chips. I love these with or without the optional items. Thank you Milly for sharing this recipe, love these 'brownies'!
the batter was great the cooked batch was better. They are great, i put chopped apple, craisins, chopped walnuts, and chopped banana, awsome!!!!
This seemed more like a bar cookie rather than a 'brownie', but it doesn't matter...this tasted great! I used butter flavored shortening, mini chocolate chips and chopped pecans (just used what I had in the house). I also baked it a little differently; 20 min at 350, the middle was still soft so I lowered the temperature to 325 and baked it for another 8 minutes so I would not have burned edges. This worked PERFECTLY-center baked and edges still soft. This recipe really can take on different flavors depending on the add ins.
Delicious! Great texture, easy to make, and would be the good base for a lot of variations. Next time I think I'll try toffee bits and milk chocolate chips. And I think they'd be delicious without any chips added but with a teaspoon of cinnamon.
