Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

When I examine my life rationally, I realize that my self worth is not dependent upon whether or not my household of guests likes my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars. That said, when I set a plate of the healthy, whole wheat oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip bars before my sister, brother-in-law, and husband—all of whom are highly opinionated about their desserts—I held my breath for the table’s first reaction.
