Great to make for an instant craving for something sweet. I tossed in some shredded coconut to the hot oat mixture and topped it with white chocolate chips mixed with the peanut butter instead of chocolate chips. If I had nuts on hand it would have been a 5 star for sure! It wasn't overly sweet for me. Read More

Recipe was indeed VERY quick and easy. However I found them to be a bit too sweet (this is saying a lot! I've got a terrible sweet tooth didn't think there was such a thing as "too sweet".) I may make them again because they were so quick and easy but next time I'll add a pinch of salt to the oatmeal mixture and maybe some crushed pretzels or chopped salted peanuts. Read More

I love these and so does my son! They are a bit messy though, definately not a hiking bar. I think next time I will try to get the frosting on the inside so we can take it camping with us. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

these are delicious. I did not vary the recipe at all except for adding another 1/2 cup choc chips to the "frosting" and they turned out great. It was hard to wait for the oat mixture to cool (it takes a while) before putting on the frosting and then you have to wait for that to set as well so I wouldn't exactly call this a quick fix for that reason but it is such a simple recipe I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants an easy recipe to fix w/ ingredients you almost always have on hand...

Thought these were a little too sweet. They were too hard if stored in the fridge and too soft if stored on the counter. Read More

there is something about the topping (pb & choc mixed together and refrigerated) that makes me lose control. i literally cannot eat just one and have to run a marathon to burn off the rest. BUT it's soo worth it! lol Read More

These were good but next time I think I will reduce the butter....1/2 cup turned out to be a too much. Read More
