Chocolate Oatmeal Chippers

Chocolate Oatmeal Chippers

I love it when a recipe is versatile. I love that recipe even more when it's filled with chocolate. And that's why this recipe was love at first sight over at Bake or Break. I was craving cookies, but I didn't really have time to stand at the stove and scoop cookie after cookie onto baking sheets. Enter the bar option: As in one sheet of cookie dough, baked to perfection, and cut into squares ready to eat.

Yes. That's exactly what I wanted.

These were a hit at work. I hesitated to take them all with me because although the center of the pan was full of chewy goodness the edges of the pan were crispy crunchies. But ... some of us like chewy cookies and some of us like crispy cookies. In other words: My co-workers didn't leave a single crumb.

So I recommend these to you with the highest praises. (And if you make them as cookies let me know how they turn out!)

  1. I LOVE bar cookies... who has time to make drop cookies these days. These look fabulous... though not at all helpful when I'm trying to curb the baking cravings.

  2. Mmmm. Just made these and they are yummy! Thanks for pointing me in the direction of the recipe. It's a nice alternative to regular brownies I think when craving something chocolate.

    They will probably be our last baked good for awhile: not only is it getting hot (and we haven't installed our A/Cs) but we need to lay off the baked treats for awhile over here!!! I'm glad the last one is a good one.

  7. Looks good but unlike yourself I prefer chocolate to take a backseat to other flavors.

    Happy holiday weekend!

  13. I know I wasn't supposed to bake anything else but I made these again (surprise). I did the cookie version and if possible I believe that they are better than the bar version delicious as it is!

Like Thumper's mama told him: If you can't so something nice, don't say anything at all. Thanks, y'all.
