These bars were easier to make than i thought!!! They taste so good and the whole family loves them.

Nice looking...

It looked nice (i rolled the topping between my hands for a nice sprinkle) and tasted good, but not the best. If the ingredients (oatmeal base and chocolate) sound good to you, try it, otherwise maybe something else.

Wonderful blending of favorite flavors!

This recipe was not only easy to do, it tasted wonderful! Because it has oatmeal AND chocolate AND peanut butter you get to have a great blend of flavors in every bite. I have taken it to several places with me and received rave reviews each time.

I would rate this 4 1/2 stars. It is incredibly easy to make and the results are terrific. I love make squares and this is definitely going to become part of my favorite brownie recipes.
