I have loved oatmeal ever since I was a little kid...the only thing I loved more than a bowl of oatmeal with fresh fruit on top was oatmeal cookies and this Leftover Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars Recipe definitely does not disappoint!
Leftover Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars Recipe
I love Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and I absolutely LOVE Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies too, like this amazing recipe I am sharing using the leftover oatmeal from my recent Instant Pot Oatmeal Recipe.
Yes, I know - no one likes Oatmeal Cookies and I have heard the joke quite often about being tricked into eating an oatmeal raisin cookie because the person thought it was a chocolate chip cookie!
I can never get enough of Oatmeal Cookies, but I love that these are actual bars - it makes them so much easier to gift because you can just stack them up evenly in a storage container or gift tin.
They're perfect for gift giving around the holidays!
