I used to get this ALL THE TIME with my 2 boys and of course, their friends that would ALWAYS come home with them ~ … this dish can be made from start to finish in about 10 minutes – THAT’S GETTING THE INGREDIENTS TOGETHER and MAKING IT!!! YaHoo! 🙂  ~ so let’s go!


Microwave Oatmeal Bars
So easy to make!

2 cups of quick-cooking oats
1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup of honey
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a bowl combine oats and brown sugar. Then stir in melted butter and honey. Press into a greased 9 inch square microwave dish.
Microwave uncovered on high for 90 seconds-then rotate a half turn and microwave 90 seconds longer.
Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Then microwave on 30% power for 4 1/2 minutes or until chips are glossy.
Refrigerate 15-20 minutes before cutting and then store in airtight container.

Such a ‘sweet’ way to share a bit more about My Precious Lord with ~~jelly beans~~… I was always looking for ways to incorporate ‘things’ to have a better / bigger meaning about the holidays with my boys when they were little; this one fits into Easter perfectly ♥
