Toffee Oatmeal Bar Recipe

by Brittany on August 20, 2011

I’m currently en route to Orlando!

This morning was very eventful but I will get into details about it when I have more time to write. What you do need to know is that I had Whole Foods again for the second day in a row.

What can I say? I had to go out with a bang ;) Baptismm 114

I knew that I couldn’t leave you guys hanging without a post, so I’ve hooked you up with my toffee oatmeal bar recipe from earlier this week :) Enjoy!

Those oatmeal bars are my favorite! I love crushed walnuts on top, they are one of my favorite nuts! When I was younger I always thought they looked like brains!
