So u use either old fashion oats or quick oats... they do not need to be cooked, like making oatmeal, correct? Would love to make these, but need further understanding of the oats...Thank Youbr /br /

For those who complain about no nutritional info, perhaps you shouldn't use this site, or at least use your imagination and learn to make substitutions, or eat what you prepare in moderation. There is always a way to make it work. Life is short, enjoy it!

Is it old fashioned or quick oats or even already prepared oatmeal (like goldbaby asked)? I would love to make them............

I've made these many times and they are wonderful. I always use old fashioned oatmeal but you can also use quick oats.

i'd like to make this recipe. What kind of oats do you use in this recipe? Old fashioned or quick oats? Thank you.

Old fashioned or quick oats can be used in this recipe.

This is a great site, I love the recipes. And I try them all the time. Now I have founf the recipe box, which is going to come in handy. for you dont all ways have time to writr them down or print them , now i can just go and look up and print on my time.

I really enjoy seeing a lot of the recipes at your web site but don't try them as there is no nutritional information and since I'm doing WW I need to count points, yup still doing the old program. Will look forward to when your recipes all have the nutritional value listed. Thanks for a great web site and continued success...Judy :)

How long do you bake the crust mixture????

Hello cinross 6488852, Sorry about that, you will bake the crust for 10 to 15 minutes. This recipe has been updated to reflect the changes. Thanks!

These sound delicious! Can you show the nutritional information?

How long do you bake it?

@carolyncombs 4043049, Thanks so much for bringing this to our attention! We've updated the recipe. We apologize for any inconvenience, --Editors of RecipeLion

While reading this recipe, I am questioning the "6 packages" of chocolate chips. In a 9 X13" pan, that would be a lot of chocolate. 6 - 12 oz pkgs would be 4.5 lbs. of chocolate, right? Expensive too! Maybe it's right, maybe a typo?? Thanks.
