Lola’s Kitchen: Oreo Cookie Bars Recipe

Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.

I discovered these bars a while ago when I was looking for a new recipe to try out and I had some M&M’s I wanted to use in baking. I actually ended up liking these better without M&M’s so I adapted the recipe to have it without them, but my boyfriend prefers them with, so that’s why you see two halves on the pictures ;). These cookie bars are really good. I like the taste and texture of the cookie dough and it combines well with the oreo’s.

This recipe is based on Averie Cooks Loaded M&M Oreo Cookie Bars

Ingredients

  • Sugar – 160 gram/ 4/5 cup
  • Butter – 113 gram/ 1/2 cup
  • Flour – 125 gram/ 1 cup
  • Vanilla Essence – 1 teaspoon
  • Oreo cookies (or something similar) – 16 cookies
  • Egg – 1

Method

  1. Warm up your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a small-ish bowl break the 16 Oreo’s into pieces. I usually try to break each Oreo into 4-5 pieces. Picture below.
  3. Warm your butter for about 30 second in the microwave. Then mix it with the sugar in a medium sized bowl.
  4. Add the vanilla essence and the egg and mix until combined.
  5. Now add the flour and mix again until well combined.
  6. Add the pieces of Oreo and mix shortly to distribute them throughout the dough.
  7. Spread the dough into a baking paper covered low oven proof plate/ bowl. Place it in the oven and bake for 20-22 minutes or until a cake tester comes out dry and they are brown on top.
  8. Let cool down for a bit and then slice in pieces.

Variation Tips

  • Oreo Cookie Bars with M&M’s. Add some M&M’s on top before you put the cookie bars in the oven. An flavor M&M’s will do.
  • Oreo Cookie Bars with different flavor Oreo’s. Instead of normal Oreo’s you can also use a different flavor Oreo’s in these bars.
  • Oreo Cookie Bars with topping. Add your favorite toping or candy bar on top of the bars before you put them in the oven.

    I would like to try them both ways. I’ve had M&M regular cookies, but never with Oreos, but I would like to try with just the Oreos taste.

    The last Oreos recipe I made was a chocolate mousse with a layer of crushed Oreos between and whipped topping with Oreos on top. It was too sweet for me, but everyone else liked it. 🙂

      They are good both ways, I just prefer them with only Oreo’s. The Oreo and m&m’s taste does go well together, although I used m&m’s with peanuts this time and I think I would prefer the plain ones for this recipe.

      Oh that chocolate mousse sounds delicious! Seems like something I would like.

    Those look really good. I’m not a huge fan of Oreo’s by themselves but the final product looks pretty yummy! With or without M&M’s- hmm tough call. 🙂

      With the m&m’s it was just a bit too much for me and I thought the chocolate added changed the flavor and I liked it better without. Although maybe I’ll try it with plain m&’s once as we used peanut ones this time.

      You can really use Oreo’s for a lot of different recipes. I like your idea of using Oreo parts as cupcake decorations!
