How To Make Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Make the cookie dough as directed.

We like to use different types of chocolate in these bars, depending on what I have on hand. We prefer a mixture of half milk chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. You can also use semi sweet or even cut up chocolate bars. You can also use old-fashioned oats or quick oats. Include raisins, craisins or nuts if you would like. This recipe is very forgiving. Whatever you have will taste amazing!

Bake until slightly golden and set. Allow to cool completely before serving for on the go.

These are also so good straight out of the over when they are all warm and gooey. To achieve this ooey-gooey bar texture, bake for a few minutes less than the recipe suggests. Top with some vanilla ice cream and you have created an amazing bar that everyone will love!

Tips and Tricks:

  • Make sure your butter is room temperature.
  • To measure the flour, scoop the flour into the measuring cup and level it off. This will help you avoid over measuring the flour.
  • Use room temperature eggs. To make this happen quickly, put the eggs in luke warm water for a few minutes.
  • To Store. Store leftover bars in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  • To Freeze. You can also wrap them tightly and freeze for up to 2 months.

    Finally! An oatmeal bar recipe that isn’t gluten free, dairy free, sugar free! No hate to anyone on restrictive diets, but I just wanted some fashioned goodness and this wins! I didn’t have chocolate chips on hand, so I cup up apples, instead. Delicious!

  2. do they really need to be stored in the refrigerator? we substituted the white chocolate chips with butterscotch and they were great!

    These were amazing! My family absolutely loved them. By far the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have had! These will be a new staple in my house, I am looking forward to making them again this weekend!! 
    I didn’t have white or milk chocolate chips, instead I just put in 2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips and they turned out perfect!
