 I love oatmeal cookies. Even though, I don’t like to discriminate between the cookies, I have to admit that I like oatmeal cookies the most. Ever since I made the Coconut Oatmeal Cookie Bars, I’ve been dying to play around with different types.

A few weeks ago, I got a chance to make some dishes for a potluck study group at school and I made these cookie bars. Yes, it does sound like a fun study group and it was! These oatmeal cookie bars were even more fun.

I’m sorry that it took me so long to share these great cookies, hope you forgive me!

This is going to be a great Mother’s Day weekend for me. I will be spending it with my sister and my little man. We are also celebrating my mom’s 50th birthday! My sister and I are planning on whipping something special for our mom and I can’t wait to share it with you.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!

  17. I just got through making these and they are awful. The only thing that was good was the topping. The cookies itself just crumbles and not very tasty. Now looking and re-examining the recipe don’t you think it needs some kind of liquid beside eggs. Please take my word on this and waste your ingredients. Sorry for the negative comments. Linda

    • I’m sorry they didn’t come out, Linda. I’ve been making these oatmeal cookies for years and these cookie bars are always a hit. I’ve brought it to several gathering and everyone enjoyed it. Again, sorry you didn’t like it.

  21. These look so delicious! Looks like it would be a very chewy combination, perfect. Thanks so much for linking up to Inspire Me Wednesday! Featuring you in this week’s issue.

  22. I am definitely doing a gluten free version!

  23. Drooling. These look amazing! Like I would expect anything less from you, Lyuba! YUM!

  24. Just made this receipe and the flavor is great but unfortunately it was really dry… Followed your receipe… What did I do wrong… As yours looks really moist in the picture…

    • I’m so sorry they weren’t moist enough! I would suggest baking them a little less. There can always be a difference in baking time when different types of pan is used and the oven can also make a difference sometimes. (I noticed that an older oven can take a bit longer to cook than a new one.) The more you bake a cookie, the less moist it would be so that’s why my first suggestions is to bake it a little less :) ( Add topping after 15 minutes and cook for additional 5-7 before checking if the cookie is done enough in the center. If not, do another 5 minutes)
