This is my go-to recipe for cookie bars. I've made them many, many times over the years and have shared the recipe with friends and family. Delicious, easy recipe!

Substitutions I've made are: butterscotch chips (instead of peanut butter), pecans or chopped peanuts (instead of walnuts), and I've also thrown in 1/4 cup of shredded coconut when using butterscotch chips. It's a versatile recipe!

Delicious! Wanted a bar cookie that could travel long distance. This recipe fit the bill! It looks like the posted picture, packed nicely in my container & has a soft, chewy texture. This recipe is a keeper!

baked these as a snack for our family vacation, and they were a big hit. i threw in dark chocolate, milk chocolate, peanut butter and butterscotch chips, so they had something for everyone! they also traveled nicely, stayed moist and didnt make a big mess.
