These sinful little cookie dough bars are such a treat, can’t wait to share them with you. The cookie bar is a buttery oatmeal white chocolate cookie that is irresistible. To make it even better the frosting is an oatmeal white chocolate chip cookie dough frosting, egg free so you don’t worry 🙂

I can’t tell you enough how great these are, you’ll have to try them yourself! Enjoy friends!!

Here are some key ingredients in the recipe.

You know the drill, let’s start by adding your butter and sugars to the mixer.

Time to add your dry ingredients, let’s start with the flour.

Transfer your cookie dough to an 8×8 inch baking dish and bake!

    Really good, but very sweet and rich! Only problem I had was that my cookie dough on top was too dry and crumbly. I had to add water to the dough to get it to spread. Also, if you don’t eat them right away, the dough drys back out. If you are taking them to a party, they will go quickly and you won’t have this problem!

    Love the dessert, but I had the same problem with the frosting (crumbly)… I added a bit more butter, and it was great – and didn’t dry out after a little time had passed. They were a huge hit at the bbq I took them to.

    […] Some of the best snacks in the Bay Area – Cornology Chicago mix popcorn and (my all-time favorite) See’s candies. Oh, and that pink sprinkled cookie morsel? Well, whenever my grandparents come over for dinner, my grandpa always expects dessert. Because he, like me, has an insatiable sweet tooth, but also because nine times out of 10, I probably did bake something that day. So this treat was a white chocolate chip oatmeal cookie dough-topped white chocolate chip oatmeal cookie bar. A mouthful, I know. But a good one. Thanks to Jenny for the recipe! […]

    Hi Jenny!
    I’d like to know if you can substitute the white chocolate for semi-sweet chocolate. Would I have to tweak the rest of the recipe too? I’d love to use white chocolate but unfortunately only have semi-sweet at the moment. 🙁 I really want to try this recipe… Everyone says it’s delicious! And the pictures look mouth-watering! I’d like to om nomnom on these ASAP if I can~ @[email protected]
