I had made some Chocolate and Oatmeal bars in the past, they were no bake, but saw this baked version and was tempted to have a bake off too!! My family is always up for taste testing dessert.

The verdict is out: A delicious chocolate fudge layered between oatmeal cookie dough. Easy and so yummy!

These Oatmeal Fudge Bars Recipe are definitely not as sweet and I did not add the nuts since one child is not a big fan of nuts in his food. Next time I might experiment by putting them in half of the batch.

I reduced to butter by 3 tablespoons as I only had 2 sticks in the fridge. The hardest part of this recipe was spreading the bottom layer as the dough was very very sticky.

Can only imagine if it had all the butter how much more sticky it would have felt.

These will pack well in lunch boxes and great to pack for a picnic too. I may also try to add some Nutella or peanut butter to the chocolate next time for a different taste.
