But the next day I saw this quick and easy recipe for Very Berry Crumble Bars on Megan’s Munchies and I thought it was a good compromise. Well, at least it had fruit and oats in it. The recipe does have a cup of oil in it, but I think next time I’ll try it with less oil. It makes a 9×13 pan of cookies, so I cut them up into bars and after we each had one, I froze the rest.
I really didn’t plan on eating any more, but some how every night around 8:00 I just couldn’t resist these delicious bars! I think they may be addicting! Although one bar did seem to satisfy my sweet tooth. Especially when I warmed it up in the microwave and topped it with a little Cool Whip. It was Light Cool Whip though, so really I was being good, right?
Thanks Megan for sharing the recipe!
