Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars Recipe

If you haven’t noticed by now, I love a good bar cookie. Not only to eat, but I love making them because you don’t have to put sheet after sheet of cookies in the oven. It’s just a one-and-done deal! This recipe is perfect for feeding the masses but will be completely ready in less than 30 minutes. That’s what I call “WINNING”! :

  1. Update to my earlier comment- I made these with organic coconut palm sugar today. You can use it instead of brown sugar and it's better for you- Dr Oz says so :-). Anyway- these are so good, I halved the recipe because there are only 2 of us and baked it for 22 minutes in an 8x8 pan. Thanks for posting these! I will make them again for sure
  2. The only 10x15 cookie sheet I had was dark...so I should have shortened the baking time to ab 15 minutes! Not as lovely as yours, but still delish! This may replace my family fave...Thanks! (How fun to have all those sisters...I live in a world of guys!)
