This bar cookie recipe comes from Grandma Evelyn, my husbands grandmother. She sure had the best cookie recipes ever! These are actually on the healthy side of cookies. The base is mainly oats, sugar, and butter. (And if you count the butter as a dairy serving, all the healthier, right?!)
These are quick and easy to make. My sister makes a similar cookie but hers has a different name. I would venture a guess that these are as healthy as your average chocolate covered granola bar and MUCH tastier!
6 C. quick oats
1 C. melted butter
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together well and press into an 11 x 17 inch pan. Bake 15 minutes at 375.
Mix in double boiler or carefully in microwave:
3/4 C. corn syrup
1 1/4 C. chocolate chips (I like semi-sweet)
3/4 C. chunky peanut butter
Heat and stir until melted, spread on hot cookie bar crust. Cool, cut, and serve!
