We all need quick, basic recipes sometimes. This is one of them. It’s a dessert or snack I fall back on when I’m tight in time and need to get something baked to bring to a potluck, or for company coming. It’s quick, easy, and takes ingredients I almost always have on hand! Think of it as an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie-in-a-bar. Very sweet, but yummy and QUICK!
