I made these bars with half cinnamon chips and half white chocolate chips - still added a half teaspoon of cinnamon. I also just put a white fluffy canned frosting on instead of cream cheese frosting. Everyone loved them!

Very rich and delicious. You can skip the cream cheese frosting or 1/2 it because it doesn't need it.

I made these today I didn't have the Chips but the Cinnamon worked fine. Next time I think I will use smaller oats, my kids have a problem with some textures. But we liked it a lot.

These were easy to make and VERY tasty. I cut them small since they are sweet.

I get the request for these bars year round from anyone who's had them! GREAT RECIPE!!!!!!

These bars are so good, you don't need the frosting. A very delicious different treat.

A dusting of powdered sugar makes another nice and easy topping for these bar cookies instead of the frosting. Also, crushed walnuts is a winderful addition to the ingredients.
