These easy oatmeal chocolate chip bars are not only tasty but filling too! Made with easy ingredients for a great snack to take on the go!

Have you ever tried oatmeal bars? They are so yummy and easy to make.

Plus they are much healthier than other snacks out there. My favorite thing to add in them is chocolate chips to this easy recipe! Yum. These chocolate chip oatmeal bars are a great treat and and easy dessert.

I am often trying to find healthy easy snacks for the kids. This one instantly became a favorite in my household!

I hope you enjoy it too. Here is what you will need!

3/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats

2 cups, all-purpose flour, scooped and leveled

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup (1.5 stick) unsalted butter, melted

1 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar

1 large egg +1 egg yolk

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup mini milk chocolate chips

1 cup semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips (can also use milk chocolate) 

Notes: I like to line my pan with parchment paper that hangs over the side for easy removal of bars once they are baked and cooled. This is also an easy clean up because there is no sticky residue left behind so you can just pull it up and toss it.

I used old fashioned rolled oats, but quick cooking oats will work too. They may give the bars more of a crunch or texture than desired though.

These bars last for about 3 days after baking which makes perfect for meal prep! Just put them in an airtight container! It’s like having oatmeal chocolate chip cookies in bar form.

Made with simple ingredients this is a great recipe for a bake sale. This sweet treat is an easy bar cookie recipe and one of my favorite dessert bars.

If you try these chocolate chip oatmeal cookie bars let me know! It’s one of my favorite recipes because it has the perfect combinations of old-fashion oats and chocolate pieces.

I made these for a school snack and got rave reviews from the whole family. It’s a yummy crumbly cookie bar that will satisfy your sweet tooth and get the stamp of approval from everyone who tries them!
