Quickie Monster Bars

I’m always looking for quick, tasty and healthy – they have oats and peanut butter so it qualifies as healthy in my book – snacks to take to the county fair for the kids and these will be perfect!  The fact I can put all the batter in one pan bake off and cut into bars that still taste like the Monster Cookies my kids love is just a huge bonus!

The first time I made this recipe I saw the amount of batter it made, then how many good size bars I was able to cut after they were baked and thought Holy Cow-we will be sick of these before they are gone…….I was totally wrong!  As soon as the last one disappeared the next kid through the kitchen was begging me to make more!

This recipe is a definate keeper!
