Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Bars – I loved these bars! Did you notice I said “loved” as in… they’re already gone? Uh huh, that 9 inch pan of bars didn’t last long here.
Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Bars
Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Bars are so tender. But that’s not even the best of it. The smooth, creamy, milk chocolate flavor of the chips along with the cinnamon and nutmeg were very more-ish. I found myself wanting to keep eating them so I could savor those simple yet unbelievable flavors together.
I made these bars on a rainy afternoon just because I didn’t have anything else to do. It’s one of the few times this summer I was happy it rained. Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Bars… simply delicious. Enjoy!

Yum!! So many good flavors here.
Thank you Charlotte!
Definitely going to make these!
You’ll love them Lori!
These simply look DELICIOUS !! And I happen to love everything with cinnamon 🙂
These bars are simply beyond wonderful! I made them today for 5 family members (including my grandson) arriving here in Iceland for a visit from the US & Canada. And they will have a real treat for dessert tomorrow evening. Siggi & I could not wait until then, so we had a small taste test when they were fully-cooled & cut. He grabbed the container I was about to store in my fridge & walked out of the kitchen w/it. It was quite a while before he grudgingly agreed to give it back for the sake of our family visitors. Normally a tough reviewer, it was his way of saying “Better make these again soon & do not expect me to share them again.” Thx for sharing this great recipe. 🙂
Awe Mary you just made my day! I loved the cinnamon and chocolate together, it was heavenly. Thank you so much for coming back to tell me you made them!
I found this recipe by chance but it was what I was looking for! My husband’s best friend died very unexpectedly and I am sending food to them every day because no one should have to think about what to cook under these circumstances, right? He has an extensive family, grandchildren too. I am sending after school snacks as well and these bars are perfect. Yesterday I made your cherry oatmeal almond bars which are spectacular. You really helped me out during this unhappy time. Thank you.
do you make oatmeal and put it in the mixture for the Oatmeal Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Bars or use dry quick oats
Hi Peggy the oatmeal in the recipe is NOT cooked. Let me know what you think if you make them, we loved them here!
Would old fashioned oats still work in this recipe?
Courtney if you have a food processor you can take the old fashioned oats and plus them a few times to make quick oats. It’ll have a slightly different texture with old fashioned oats but it’ll be good.
These bars are so delicious! Fulfills my sweet cravings and the oats make me feel less guilty and more satisfied. I took your advice and pulsed the old fashioned oats and the texture is perfect. Will try your other recipes for sure.
I finally made these. My husband and our son really liked them. However, the corners were too hard. I used the USA square pan. As far as I know I followed the directions exactly. The tops of mine didn’t look like yours.
What a fun way to get those tasty chocolate chip cookie flavours in bars!
The flavor combination in these bars is outstanding… no wonder they disappeared so quickly!
I have always loved oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, but had never tried to make oatmeal chocolate chip bars before. I can’t wait to try this recipe! The addition of cinnamon makes them so perfect for Fall!
These look incredible – they are the perfect snack. I love the inclusion of cinnamon.
I love this recipe! I did have to make some changes because I’m a diabetic. I used whole-grain oats and flour, Splenda instead of sugar and sugar free chocolate chips. It was great! My two year old grandson doesn’t like “healthy” food and he asked for a second portion!
Thank you Jessica
These chocolate chip bars would go fast in my house. Anything with chocolate chips and my kids would devour that in no time.
These bars look delicious! Love the flavors 🙂
Thank you Julia!
This is such an incredible mix of flavors! I need to make these bars asap!
I love the combination of cinnamon and chocolate so these bars are divine! Can’t wait to make them again!
These bars are incredible! My family had them gone in an instant!
Thank you Tayler.
I’m convinced there is no better combo than oatmeal and cinnamon…UNTIL you added chocolate chips! Definitely trying this for a holiday brunch!
Thank you Liz.
These look perfect! I love easy to assemble bar cookies! i’m going to make this when my son comes home for Thanksgiving!
Thank you Beth
Sounds delish, I take it the flour is all purpose, since we are using baking powder?
Yes Wanda it’s all purpose flour. I hope you try the bars, they’re delicious!
