Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chip Bars Recipe

Gluten-Free Oatmeal Chip Bars Recipe

“With two busy boys who would rather move around than sit and eat, I needed a gluten-free, hearty, hand-held treat that could double as a quick breakfast, brunch, lunch or snack. This is a favorite of theirs, and I can change it up to accommodate ingredients I have on hand.” —Susan James, Cokato, Minnesota
