“This recipe has been handed down from my mom to me just recently. The original recipe was from my aunt's personal recipe collection. They freeze very well for make ahead treats. This recipe uses oats, chocolate chips and has a nice orange glaze that is poured over the top of the brownies once they are removed from the oven.”
