Easy Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

chocolate chip oat bars recipe

I tried a recipe on a whim the other day. I had a mad craving for chocolate chip cookies, but was feeling to lazy to make cookies. Thus, I found this recipe for Chocolate N’ Oat Bars from the Eagle Brand website, tweaked it a little and it’s vanished from our kitchen twice since! 

It’s made with ingredients that are pantry staples – I love a sweet that doesn’t require a grocery store run!
