As I've stressed many times, baking relaxes me. After a long day of homework, classes (I had none today though) or just an exhausting day, I've found that my comfort zone is in the kitchen. Whenever I am in my tiny appliance-clad kitchen I forget about anything that is bothering me and I just cook.
Anyways, today I had a stressful day. Even though I didn't have any class, I have a lot or work this week, and its definitely taking a toll on me. But I wanted to cook a snack for my fellow SMG team members. My roommate requested Oatmeal Chocolate Bars, and I decided they were the perfect option.
Normally, the recipe would follow, but these cookie bars are a family secret. We are trying to keep them a mystery (although if you know what books to look in you would find them easily). So here are the pictures for you to enjoy!!
P.S. I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to make these and have to abstain from chocolate since I gave it up for lent. Very challenging to stand over a pot of melting chocolate or stopping myself from licking my fingers after assembling the bars.
