Golden Oreo Chex Bars

Guess what? I’ve got a sugary sweet treat that’s not healthy-fied. I was googling vegan, healthy sweets during one of the 3 football games we watched today and Bowen requested I make him a treat that’s not sugar free 😉

He LOVES golden Oreos, every time he goes to the store with me he stops by the Oreo aisle and tries to put them in our cart, I’ve won the battle until now.

These are a really easy ‘throw together’ dessert. They’re perfect for your tailgating bunch or little ones-easy to eat and really yummy!

Bowen had his with a scoop of blue bell strawberries & homemade vanilla ice cream and I had a bite or three  from the dish, now that we’ve had our fix who’s coming to take these treats off my hands?

If you don’t love golden Oreos I feel certain chocolate sandwich cookies would be equally delicious!
