Double Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bars

It's Secret Recipe Club day and I couldn't be more excited about my reveal!! I had I found so many fabulous recipes that I took me forever to nail down the one that I wanted to post about... (I actually made two different recipes already in the past month and have two more printed off to make in the future!!) Seriously? Pumpkin Spice Trifle? Since it's the middle of October that recipe is sure to be made up pretty dang quick!!

I already made her Cajun Chicken Pasta and it was TO DIE FOR!! So creamy and delicious... Cost me a lot of my points for that day, but let me tell you, it was totally worth it! I wanted to post about that, but I found a way to make it a little lighter and I want to make it again before I post it. Look for it coming soon...

So, I finally settled on these fabulous Double Chip Oatmeal Cookie Bars. I had girls night at my house the other night and I knew that it was time to make something sweet and delicious that I wouldn't eat completely on my own... I won't even talk about points in these bad boys - they were purely an extravagence... I also love anything that includes oatmeal and chocolate chips - yum!! So we gobbled up a bunch that night and then my husband to the rest to work with him... Needless to say - completely gone and no longer a temptation in my house! PHEW...

So, stop by and check out her blog!! I'm sure you will find as many, if not TONS more, fabulous recipes that you will want to try out as well!
