Soo delicious!! This is my favorite of all the bars that the Farmer's family makes, and trust me there are tons (yes, I will make more of the bar recipes to share with you hopefully soon - since I don't think I have tasted them all yet, maybe I will have a new fave!!) And this one has oatmeal so it's totally healthy ;)

I found this CUTE little treat carrier at Wal-Mart, so I put my Oatmeal Carmelitas in it and took it to the supper at our friends the other night! I just adore Easter stuff!! I got a TON of things along with this, on my last Wal-Mart run..coincidentally the Farmer suggested that we grocery shop at Hyvee from now on!! hahaha..yeah right :)
