Chocolate Oatmeal Cookie Bars


  • 1 1/2 cups coconut oil The original recipe said that you could use butter if you didn't have coconut oil; but, of course, I used coconut oil!
  • 3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 1/2 cups oatmeal

Filling ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Cream together coconut oil, brown sugar, and eggs.
  2. Add vanilla, flour, baking soda, salt, and oatmeal. Mix well.
  3. Take 3/4 of the dough, and press it into a greased rectangular pan.
  4. Set the remaining dough aside.
  5. Make the filling--Melt chocolate chips, coconut oil, sweetened condensed milk, salt, and vanilla just until it is melted (do not boil!).
  6. Pour the filling evenly over the bottom layer. (Make sure it is even by spreading it over the top.)
  7. Take the rest of the dough, break it up, and dot it over the frosting. I would take a tablespoon and put tablespoons of the dough all over the top.
  8. Bake at 350° for 20 minute (or until done--Since I doubled it, I cooked it for a few more minutes.)
  9. Let it cool completely, then cut into squares. Eat them or you can even freeze them and eat them later!
