A delicious chocolate oat traybake. A oaty base is covered in a creamy chocolate layer, then covered with a crumbly oat topping. Perfect for packed lunches or cake sales.
I found this recipe origanally in a Taste of Home cookbook belonging to my mother. The taste of home version called for only 3 cups of quick cooking oats and called to be baked in a 10x15" baking pan. With this change the cookies come out soft and chewy. Please note that these cookies are REALLY sweet. - 29 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This has the potential to be great, but the recipe as it stands produces very dry, crumbly bars that are far too sweet. Most of them went in the garbage. - 21 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Half of this recipe fits nicely in a 8" square baking pan. It's a bit labour intensive for squares, but the result is quite delicious. Try it with other nuts if you don't like walnuts. Thanks Janea! - 10 Jun 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
