Oatmeal Chocolate Cookie Bars


I always wanted to be the sort of mother who had freshly baked cookies waiting for her children when they got home from school. It just seemed so cozy and sweet and old-fashioned. I don't do it as often as I used to (trying not to eat sugar and all that), but when the kids had an extra early release day last week, Elliot and I thought it'd be fun to have these oatmeal chocolate cookie bars waiting for them.

They were thick and rich and oat-y. Unless you have lots of people to share them with, I'd suggest cutting the recipe in half. That's what I did, and I still managed to spoil my dinner and have some left over to deliver to a friend.
