Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cream Pie Bars
Homemade Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cream Pie Bars are easy to make and taste better than anything you can buy in a package. Plus these have chocolate chips!
- 3/4 cups unsalted butter (softened)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- dash salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2-4 tablespoons milk
|Preheat oven to 350 |
In a large mixing bowl cream the butter, oil, and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and salt and mix well. Add soda, oats, and flour just until incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread dough into a greased 9x13" pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden on the edges. Let cool completely.
|In a mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and 2 Tbs milk. If too thick add more milk 1 Tbs at a time until desired consistency is reached.|
|Cut cooled bars into 24 squares, then cut each square in half, horizontally, as shown in the picture above. Spread a generous layer of cream onto half of the bars on the cut side. Top with remaining bars, cut side down. Store in a sealed container.|

These look beyond amazing! I loved oatmeal cream pies when I was a child, but my body can’t really handle processed foods. These homemade bars are the perfect solution. Pinned!

I often turn to bars instead of cookies, too. They’re a time-saver, for sure, and my family loves them just as much. Your oatmeal cream bars look so good!
