Chocolate Oatmeal Crumble

Chocolate Oatmeal Crumble from Kaye's Cupboard.This is the equivalent of apple crisp or peach cobbler- for chocolate-lovers! I found this recipe a couple of years ago, and when I tried it, I was hoping for an oatmeal-cookie type of bar cookie. I pulsed the chocolate chips in the blender a few times to spread the chocolate more evenly through the bars.

I was surprised, though, by how hard they got when they cooled completely. They weren’t bricks, but they weren’t soft either. Sometimes things that seem like flops are only just about to get better.

Enter vanilla ice cream. I just plunk the bar cookie in a mug, microwave for 20 seconds, add a scoop of ice cream, and- well, it’s completely delicious!! I never would have thought to put the two together if they hadn’t cooled harder. Fantastic texture and flavor met and married.

  1. I ve tried about a dozen other chewy chocolate chip oatmeal recipes from online. This one by far is the best and true to its title. I did the recipe pretty much exactly and shown and mixed in the ingredients as directed.
