Breakfast Oatmeal Bars

These oatmeal bars are completely customizable and great for mornings on the go. I usually make a batch on Sunday nights so we’ve got breakfast all week. However, it’s difficult not to eat half of them as soon as I pull them out of the oven. It’s hard to resist these chocolatey, crumbly bars.
