Reviews for Microwave Oatmeal Bars

This recipe couldn't have been any easier to make. My microwave is a newer model so it only took 3 minutes to melt the chocolate chips. This is great for a last minute desert. I stuck mine in the freezer for a few minutes so we could try them out sooner. Will definitely make again! And I may try some Peanut butter in between the cooked oatmeal and chips nest time.
Only thing is, the recipe didn't say best way to store them, if you keep them in fridge, you have to let them come to room temp to slice easier
This was so easy to make and everyone loved it!, half the dish was eaten rightup!, cooked it for a little less and also had added some peanut butter to the mix, tasted like a chewy pb chocolate granola bar!
These were easy and we both liked them quite a bit. I may add a little peanut butter next time to boost the flavor of the bars. For the amount of ingredients and the time it took, these were well worth making.
Easy to make. Turn out perfectly every time for me. I make these often as an after school snack/ dessert for my family.
