  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Spread the almonds onto a baking sheet; toast until the nuts are golden brown and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove nuts from baking sheet, and reserve.
  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan placed over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar; cook, stirring, until sugar has dissolved and mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and oatmeal. Press mixture into an 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned and set, about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven, and allow to cool slightly. Sprinkle chocolate chips over surface; let chocolate sit until melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Spread chocolate evenly over oatmeal squares. Sprinkle warm chocolate with toasted almonds. Cut into squares when cool.

Oh, man! These were so delicious, and simple too. I had a houseful of kids over and needed a simple and quick snack. This fit the bill, and I also like that it uses all oatmeal and no flour. ...

Yum these are great! Yes a bit crumbly, but delicious. I left out the almonds and subbed dried cranberries, you could put in almost anything and they would be great.

What a tasty, simple recipe! I made it a bit healthier by substituting almond butter in place of regular butter and 1/4 cup cocoa mixed into to batter in place of the cocolate chips. I didn't ne...

These are so easy to make and easy to adapt to your own tastes. To make it healthier I used half of the butter and half applesauce, less brown sugar and added honey, and I used less choc chips ...

These are delicious, and very easy. I baked them in greased mini-muffin tins. They did get quite hard and crumbly once cooled, but the crumbs made an awesome yogurt topping! Instead of 2c oat...

Fast, easy, and delicious. They are a bit crumbly, even if you boil the caramel mixture for a few minutes, but it's ok. Just be sure to cut into very small squares, since they're incredibly rich!

Good!! - actually more like a butterscotch candy with oatmeal than a cookie. I used walnuts (had them in the house) - and skipped the chips (didn't have them in the house).
