My friend, Corinne from Wondermom Wannabe, and I have a dessert recipe tag game going on. It all started with Oreo Surprise Cookies and the most recent was Healthy Peanut Butter Brownies. So, today it’s my turn and I’m up with the best Oatmeal Fudge Bars ever. Really! These Oatmeal Fudge Bars are so rich and smooth that you need to plan on eating two servings (just warning you, so plan ahead). I shared a healthy brownie recipe on my last turn, but this time forget the healthy, I’m going for heavenly!
These bars are pretty simple to make. I recommend you cut them smaller than a usual brownie size because they’re very rich (and you are going to eat 2, so you might as well eat 2 smaller sized bars).
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 4 cups quick cooking oatmeal
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Grease a 9x13" baking pan. Preheat oven to 350F.
- Cream the butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
- Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda and mix well. Mix oatmeat in well. Refridgerate about 2 cups of oatmeal mixture. Press the rest of the oatmeal mixture into the pan.
- Combine chocolate chips, condensed milk and butter in a sauce pan over low heat. Stir constantly until the chips and butter are melted. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
- Spread fudge layer over the oatmeal mixture in the pan. Crumble reserved oatmeal mixture over the fudge layer and pat down.
- Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Let cool completely before cutting into 2" or smaller bars.
The fudge layer is what makes these the best ever. Here’s a glimpse of chocolaty heaven.
Be sure to pat the reserved oatmeal mixture over the top of the fudge layer well before baking.
Okay, Corinne, tag you’re it. I can’t wait to see your next delicious installment in our game of dessert tag.

Hi Susan – Forget the top and bottom layer… just give me the entire pan of what’s in the middle! Hugs, Holly
YUMMMO!!! I think I have everything for these if I get a chance I might whip up a batch this afternoon 🙂
These do look absolutely sinful, therefore delicious. I’m ready for the tag back though. Warning, I did NOT abandon the healthy mission so our recipes this time will be VERY different!
Mmm … these look so delicious! Can’t wait to try them:)
Ginnie, I promise you’ll love them (but warning, you can’t eat just one!)
These must be one of the most beloved and shared recipes ever! Too funny that we both posted it this week. Yours are making me hungry all over again. 😉
They do look heavenly. I love choc chip oatmeal cookies but these look even easier…..and more chocolate!
I am going to say these are very healthy since they have oatmeal. I mean, oatmeal has fiber right? These look like something that I and my family would love! Thanks for making me hungry!
Holy YUM. My two favorite foods mixed together. What could be more perfect?! I love oatmeal and chocolate bars!
