|Chewy Chocolate Oatmeal Bars|
These were really easy to make. Start by creaming the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well until all ingredients are incorporated. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. I used the Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips since Aviator man doesn't like things to be too sweet. You may notice that the white chocolate chips are not in the picture. That's because they were an after thought....but I ended up sprinkling them over the top (as you can see in the picture) and this added a nice touch. Just the right amount of sweetness.
Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars:
1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 C Brown Sugar, packed
1/2 C granulated Sugar
1 t Vanilla
1 1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1 t. Baking Soda
1/2 t Baking Powder
1/2 t Salt
2 C Old Fashioned (not instant) Oats
2 C Chocolate Chips
1/2 C White Chocolate Chips
Spread the dough in a 9x13 bar pan. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.
The guys said they were good but even better when they cooled and with a glass of ice cold milk! Enjoy!
