This is more a "tip" than a recipe, but if you keep these 2 simple things in your pantry - you'll be ready the next time hectic schedules and life get the best of your memory. Heck your 10-year-old or husband could probably whip these up for you too!
So, what do you need in your cupboard...2 Betty Crocker cookie mixes (peanut butter and oatmeal) and some chocolate chips, M&M's, nuts, or whatever your heart pleases.
|(And yes, you are seeing empty packaging...I may or may not have had to whip up a batch before I could take a picture of them new.)|
And then you end up with these yummy, chewy, EASY bars!!
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Bars
1 Pkg Peanut Butter Cookie Mix
1 Pkg Oatmeal Cookie Mix
2 Cups Chips, M&M's, etc
1/3 Cup + 1 Tbsp Oil
3 Tbsp Water
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together all ingredients until well combined, stir in chips. Spread mixture evenly into ungreased 9"x13" pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown on top. Let cool for at least 15-20 minutes before cutting.
