chocolate chip oat cookie bake

oatcookiebakei made you a cookie, but I ate it
Since I’ve started to travel for work I haven’t been in my kitchen much. My awesome routine where everything had it’s place and time including work, school, gym and keeping up with tastearoo got discombobulated. I’m still trying to figure out my new routine so please bare with me. On Fridays I’m home and today I felt like baking something.

Well for some reason I was inspired to make something with a pretzel crust and since I haven’t made a quest recipe in a while I figured I would incorporate the two. This is the recipe I came up and it was delish. The quest bar already has a great apple flavor but I added chopped apples to make it extra chunky.

– and it’s delicious, trust me.
