No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars

I was invited to my first pot luck in our new home town.  I love get-togethers, but they also give me some anxiety.  When you are new to area and you are getting to know the community and new people and can be a little overwhelming. So as I was getting ready to leave a little tightness in my stomach happened – I would know the host, but would I know anyone else?  I knew one other person there, but a little uncomfortable in the beginning, but that did not last long.  It was nice getting to know people, share in their story, share mine (several times) and share in good food.  I was not sure what to bring, but I had wanted to try a new recipe and that is what I did.

 No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Bars ( Original Recipe )

7. Cut into bars.  You need to keep these cool or they will start to melt a little.  They will keep in the refrigerator up to one week, but I doubt they will last that long!

I didn’t hear any complaints – they were quit yummy if I do say so myself!

    Wow. These are so easy. I’m sure one can make them without the goji berries. Where did you go for a potluck? See you Thursday!!

      You do not have to use the goji berries – but you can add something else, more nuts, raisins. You just need a cup of goodies.
