Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Bars

Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Bars
  • 1 3/4 c. flour (I used 1 c. white, 3/4 c. wheat flour with great results)
  • 3/4 t. soda
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 c. oatmeal
  • 3/4 c. butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 375.  Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside.  Beat butter, sugars, egg and vanilla till fluffy and add dry ingredients.  Stir in chocolate chunks.  Press into greased 9x13 pan and bake for 18-20 minutes until light golden brown.  You can also double the recipe and press into 11x17.

I tried these at my neighbor's house and she used 3/4 c. wheat flour, and it was really good!  Makes it a little healthier, and the kids and I don't even notice.  I also shaved off a tablespoon or two of butter.  The pan was gone in no time.
