Reviews for Oatmeal Brownies
"This is a big hit at our local volunteer fire department! After the first batch, it was immediately requested again. Now, I make two batches. However, I make two trays of brownies and only use one batch of oat topping and sprinkle over the top of the two trays. Elimating the bottom layer. Quick, easy and upgrades brownies to a new level of crunch. It is a winner!"
"I made these for company and everyone loved them."
"I liked the ease of the recipe by using a boxed brownie mix. Next time I think I will try putting all the oat mixture on the bottom- as I would have liked that layer thicker."
"Delicious and easy! I used dark chocolate M&M's and did not add nuts as these were for a church dinner. Will make them again."
"These were real easy to make . Everyone from 7 yrs old kids to my 93 yr old father in law loved them"
"These were moist and delicious. Served for desert with friends. They were a hit!"
"These were Great. I used a regular sized cake pan and regular M&M's and they turned out really good. I will make these again!"
"I made this recipe, but shortened steps. I made the brownie recipe and put all the the oatmeal, nut, brown sugar mixture all on the top. I didn't have the M - Ms. They still turned out delicious. I will probably make them that way again. I'm all for easy.Ginger Murrieta, Ca"
"Made these on Tuesday while snowed in and they turned out great! Left out the nuts and got many compliments on how good they are when I brought them into work today. They are disappearing quickly and I will definitely make these again since they are a hit at home and at the office! Thanks!"
"Made these, used chocolate chips instead of M&Ms and used old-fashioned oats instead of quick. Everybody loved them. The only thing I did different was I had to bake them 30 minutes longer! And even after 30 minutes extra baking time, they are still kind of gummy in the middle - but nobody is complaining cause they are very good."
