  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; gradually blend into the creamed mixture. Stir in the oats. Press the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until firm and lightly toasted at the edges. Melt chocolate chips in the microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring frequently until smooth. Spread over bars. Cool completely before cutting into squares.

This recipe ROCKS! There's just something about chocolate and cinnamon...mmmm! The only thing that I do differently, is instead of bothering with melting the chocolate in a container, I just sprinkle the top of the pan with the chips and put the pan back into the oven for a minute or two until the chips are spreadable.

This got great reviews from my friends; however, the chocolate was too messy. I had to refridgerate it in order to cut the cookie into bars. Unfortunately, because it was a very hot weekend I had to put the left overs in the refrigerator and the cookie becomes stale, not to mention that chocolate should not be refridgerated. I'll try this again, only next time I'll stir the chocolate chips into the batter before baking and not on top.

Yum - I think I'd cut the chocolate by half next time. I like my chocolate but it's a lot. It didn't quite temper so it's sort of like gooey frosting, but it's delicious. I think these would be great with some peanut butter or peanut butter chips in them. Or maybe peanut butter chips swirled with melted chocolate chips for the topping. Really good overall!

These cookies were delicious and relatively easy to make. I melted the chocolate in the microwave and spread it over the cookies as soon as they came out of the oven. They took a long time to cool enough to cut, but they were worth the wait. Next time I would cool them in the freezer if I was pressed for time.

This cookie bar was too much. I had to put the chocolate in the refrigerator to set up and the cookie part was too "cakey" for my taste. Not a bad recipe, but I won't make again.

I added 1/2 cup cocoa to the batter and 1.5T oil. Batter was still a bit dry and sticky;hard to work with. Finished product is like a brownie with oatmeal, just not super moist. Satisfied my chocolate graving, just don't like dealing with the sticky batter.

I found these rather dry - possibly because I used oil instead of marg., but my family loved them. Next time I think I'd use only two cups of oats.
