So good. The only thing I changed was I melted about 1/3 cup creamy PB with the chocolate chips and then spread over the bars. The PB adds a little "extra" and pushes these over the top IMO!

OMG! This was soooo bad! The taste was really funky and it had a real bad consistency...it did not hold together well at all! I followed this recipe to the T and it still came out bad. I will never make this again!

Just discovered these this week when the teacher at my son's nursery school had them make a batch. (Testimony to how easy they are!) So sweet, so good. Only difference was her recipe had her sprinkle the chocolate chips over the oat layer when it was still hot, then go back a few minutes later with a spatula and spread them out. Fun to do, and one less bowl to clean. As for the difficulty presenting: she refrigerated them, then broke them into pieces, sort of like almond bark. One bite and we stopped caring what the heck they looked like anyway.

Oh so good... I had make a second batch the next day because they went so fast. Easy to whip up, too. I like them chilled in the refrigerator. Mmmm....

I made this recipe today and everyone loved it It's very rich and a little goes a long way. I'm a chocolate lover but I didn't like the taste of the chocolate chips on top. The oat layer is soooo delicious, I could do without the chocolate. What!? Could this be possible that I can pass on the chocolate? Yep, it's true, that's how good the oat layer is. I plan on using this recipe again and again and maybe use chocolate frosting instead of the chocolate chips . Thanks for sharing this recipe.

These bars are so, so good. I have been looking for this childhood favorite for a while. Simple, but DELISH!!! I just put the chips on the bars after taking them out of the oven, instead of melting the chocolate separately.

Very good. I made mine in greased muffin tins (made 16), and they came out beautifully. I overdid it on the chocolate chips - a little goes a long way - the oats are so good, you don't want to overpower them. In fact, I think you should be able to see the oats through the chocolate. Also, just sprinkle them on when the first come out of the oven and spread (rather than melting them seperately) - it is so much easier!
