These Lemon Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Creme Bars are perfect for Easter.  So lemony and dreamy!  They are little too sweet for my taste to be perfectly frank but I think kids will love them.  Enjoy!

    Thanks! The great thing about this dessert is that it can be whipped up in 30 minutes. I hope you find some time soon to turn on your oven.
