I love being productive. It’s wonderful all the things I can get done when I really put my mind to it. The only bad side effect? My days start to run together because I do so much. Needless to say, I thought for a moment that I’d actually forgotten about Tasty Tuesday.

Nope, I didn’t forget that, but I did forget that I’d promised to bring our fire department some treats today (along with several other friends of mine). Fortunately, one of them called me at 7am to see if I could bring hers over for her.

After debating what to make – since I also wanted to go running at the gym after filling up my car with gas (the dummy light was on – oops!) and do a load of laundry before picking up the wee ones from summer school – I settled on a yummy bar cookie.

My husband insists they’re evaporating, but I don’t believe him. They are pretty darn good though!

Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

2/3 c butter
1 1/2 c brown sugar
2 t vanilla
2 eggs
1 c oats
1 t baking powder
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 c flour
2 c (or more) chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 and grease a 9×13 pan.

Melt the butter in a large, heavy saucepan with the brown sugar. Remove from heat once melted and stir until fully dissolved. Add the vanilla and beaten eggs and mix until well combined (make sure you beat the eggs well before adding them!).

Add the baking powder and soda, salt, and oats. Mix well. Add the flour and stir gently until just mixed. The batter will still be somewhat soupy – that’s ok! Pour the batter into your greased pan. Sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the batter.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes – until a tester comes out clean. Cut into squares and hope no one else sees them!

    Sherry – Isn't just about anything with chocolate delicious? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Patty – Ummm I don't think it would make it to NYC, sorry! It's so easy to make though, promise.

    Chef Dennis – So could I. Sans the milk – I've never been a milk drinker, but mmmm!

    Hyacynth – Well, just one or two wouldn't be so bad, would it?
