Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookie Dough Bars

IMG_7836

Today’s recipe comes in honor of the birthday of a co-worker. She said that her husband hates white chocolate and blondies so that was her birthday treat request. I have been off the baking band wagon for a month or more because I have been busy. It was nice to get back in the kitchen to do something I love. The fun thing about this recipe besides the white chocolate is that the “frosting” is really a cookie dough recipe. For once you get to eat something that tastes as good at the batter you are not supposed to eat (darn salmonella). Although that never stops my sister, she always eats some of the raw batter.

This recipe is easy and quick. You will have some delicious bars in no time.
