Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
Dry, crumbly and bleh. Very disappointed. :(
It was so dry and crumbly. I forgot to read the review, thus I was not able to make the necessary changes.
My family loved these bars, and they disappeared quickly. I thought they had great flavor with the chocolate and peanut butter. They are easy to make. I might adjust the baking time next time I make these. I thought they were a tad dry.
I’ve made these a few times and they always come out perfectly and get lots of compliments. The only thing I do differently is bake a couple of minutes left. They’ve never turned out dry or crumbly, always chewy, soft, and very flavorful. Perfect easy dessert to take somewhere. Definitely in my “keep” file!
These are the worst bars I’ve ever made. Came out dry, flavorless and I ended up just throwing them away. They should bake for half the time, and even though I stirred in the chocolate chips instead of putting them on top, they weren’t tasty at all. I’m not sure what kind of bars or desserts the five star reviewers are used to but these were utter crap. Won’t be trusting recipes with five stars on this site.
These were plenty moist on the crumbly side. They were just so-so and the icing was nothing special.
I tried this recipe after I read some of the reviews. A lot of the people who didn't like it noted it was dry. They came out pretty good with some tweaks. I increased both the peanut butter and rolled oats to 3/4 cup because there simply wasn't enough cookie dough to fill out a 13 x 9" pan. I also used only brown sugar and reduced the baking time to 15 minutes to keep them moist. It is a very thin cookie and baking for 20 minutes is asking for trouble. Some people might like a crunch in their cookie, but I prefer mine soft and chewy with teeny bit of snap to the crust.
Delicious, easy recipe, I prefer to add the chocolate chips into the batter instead of sprinkling on top. Yummy.
Its Sept. 1, 2017 and I made these this morning and they are wonderful. and I will make them again.
We love these bars. They're so easy to fix!!
