Get your glass of milk ready, you’ll love these Oatmeal Cookie Bars!
I’ll admit that these cookie bars came out of a complete #fail. I was actually trying to make cookies and the batter ended up being too crumbly. I was this close to throwing away the dough and starting over but it tasted delicious, and my mom taught me to not waste. 😉 So I patted the dough into a baking dish, baked it and my boys went crazy for it!
Have you ever had a fail in the kitchen that actually turned out good? I think the deal changer for me was the pumpkin spice m&m’s and the Truvia Brown Sugar Blend.
Have you tried the new Truvia Brown Sugar Blend? It’s just about the best thing since sliced bread. It has 75% fewer calories than regular brown sugar but has the same EXACT flavor and texture of regular brown sugar.
Which is great for making cookies, er cookie bars. 🙂
Do you have a great recipe that uses Truvia sugars? If yes, then you need to listen up!

You certainly turned this flop into a success Jen! Mine usually go straight to the garbage!
Thanks Beth! Usually mine go in the trash, too but I just couldn’t do it with these because the dough tasted so good! Thanks for stopping by, friend!

I haven’t had the pumpkin spice M&M’s yet – these bars sound amazing!

Gotta love it when you can still turn it into a success! I’ve never tried Truvia, but you make me want to give it a go!

These look seriously awesome Jen! Like all I want to snack on right now 🙂 I love that they have pumpkin spice M&M’s!! 🙂
Annie @ Annie's Noms says
I love the look of these! I’ve just bought some coconut oil for the first time and have been looking for things to make, these look like winners! Unfortunately we don’t get any fun flavoured M&Ms here, so I’ll have to stick to plain chocolate ones!

Looks SO yummy!!!! I’ll have to try these! xoxo
