Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

We finally made it to Chocolate Friday - Woo Hoo!  Raise your piece of chocolate to say cheers to the weekend!  :)

Recently I wanted to make some cookie bars.  I had some clearance Easter M&Ms that I needed to use up so I wouldn't eat the whole bag they wouldn't go bad.  :)  I wanted to use them in a chocolate chip cookie bar recipe and started searching online.  It took me a while to find what I was looking for as I didn't want a recipe with shortening and I was hoping to find something with oats.  Finally I found what I was looking for - all butter, no shortening, old-fashioned oats, plenty of chocolate chips, and the option to use whole-wheat flour.

I found the recipe at Tammy's Recipes ~ Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars.  You can click on the link to get the recipe from Tammy's site.  The only changes I made were to use Whole Wheat Pastry Flour instead of all-purpose flour and to use 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of M&Ms.  My pic isn't the best, but at least you get the idea...
These bars were yummy!  Since I didn't use any all-purpose flour, they were a little crumbly but I liked them that way - they seemed heartier.  My son absolutely LOVED them!!  Gotta love the bar cookies - doesn't get much easier!

Now it's your turn!  Bring on the chocolate posts!  Write up a chocolatey post today or find one in your archives and come link up!  The more chocolate, the merrier!  You can get more info here or look at last week's post.  C'mon, you know you want to link something!  :)

Have a sweet chocolatey day my friends!
