I used the 9 X 13 once i saw how much oatmeal you put in them. So use that size! Other than that these are the best bar cookies i've ever had, it got a girl to like me! yeah! - 05 Jun 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I thought these bars were too thick made in a 9 inch square pan. If I made them again, I would use a 9 x 13 inch pan. - 25 May 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this twice with different results. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. The oatmeal crust was brick-hard and the chocolate kept separating from the crust when I was trying to chisel it out of the pan. On the 2nd attempt, I made several changes: I halved the recipe and put it in an 8x8 pan. I turned the oven down to 350 and only baked the oatmeal crust for 5 minutes. I also used 3 parts chocolate chips and 1 part butterscotch chips because I thought it was too sweet with the 50/50 mix. Lastly, I used Crisco to grease the pan instead of baking spray. The 2nd batch was much improved over the first! - 16 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
