Kim's StoryThese bars are full of flavor, chewy, rich and very moist. I did update the directions to read grease and flour pan because mine stuck and I had to ice the bottom instead of the top. I also added a homemade frosting to this and we like heath bar toffee bits instead of just toffee bits. They are my one of my favorite bar cookies to make. I think because of the oatmeal and nuts. To me, it makes them fabulous!
I cut mine a little smaller and got a dozen and half out of this recipe instead of a dozen.
