Do you love the instant oatmeal and cream flavors? These bars will fit the bill. They are wonderful for breakfast, a snack,or anytime!And will take care of left-over oatmeal.
Note: I developed this recipe from scratch, and have tried it with butter, and margerine, or Butter-flavored Crisco. I was very disappointed with the Crisco, and Margerine. I did not get the same flavor with them. They were still good, but not buttery flavored. If you use butter you won't be disappointed. I have tried to cut down on the fat by using the non-fat cream cheese. It works very well. Enjoy!!! :D
