"Yummy bars! I liked the oatmeal layer. It was soft but sweet and chewy. The chocolate & peanut butter topping went perfect with the oatmeal layer. The only thing I didn't like was that the oatmeal layer was a little soft, which made it a little hard to cut and remove them from the pan. Once the bars were chilled, they came out fine."
