This recipe has quickly become a family favorite. It doesn’t seem too different from other cookie bars that I have made in the past, but there is something about this recipe that is just sooooo yummy and we all agree it is the best we’ve tried! I actually first tried these about a year ago, but it’s taken me a while to track down the recipe. I’ve tried to duplicate it several times by using various oatmeal cookie dough recipes that I have, but none of them turned out quite right so I was thrilled when I finally was able to get this recipe!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Bars
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup coconut oil (the original recipe calls for vegetable oil but I think they are even better (and slightly healthier?) with coconut oil)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips (I like to use the mini ones)
3 cups miniature marshmallows
Mix brown sugar, oil, vanilla and egg together. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, salt and baking soda. Combine the two mixtures. Separate the dough in half and pack one half of the dough into a greased 9X13 pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the dough and then sprinkle the marshmallows on top. Crumble the remaining dough on top and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. I think these taste better warm, but they are a little bit crumbly at that point so you may need to eat them with a spoon! Enjoy!
