Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a favorite of mine. The combination of the hearty oats mixed with sweet milk chocolate leaves me a bit weak in the knees, I have to admit. I have been using my moms classic recipe for years (see it here). I love it to the moon and back, not just because the cookies are soft, moist and delightful but because my mom made them a lot when I was a kid…and what can I say other than she is super amazing and wonderful and they remind me of her. There you have it.
I have been on a search lately for a bar version of this recipe, because who doesn’t love the ease of making a whole pan of cookies without all the individual scooping and baking and tending, yes? This particular recipe I brought along to share with you today, is crazy good guys. CCRRRRRazy, truly. The bars are super moist, buttery, loaded with oats, chocolate and sweet wonderment.
They would be fabulous to pack in lunches, to take to a picnic, to make for a sunday night treat, as a gift for your neighbor or school teacher…or any other event you can possibly dream of.
They are dreamy, after all.
Let me show you how to make it happen…
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. Into your stand mixer or large mixing bowl place 2 C flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Toss them together with a fork to combine.
3. Grab 2 1/2 cups Old Fashioned Oats and add them to the mixing bowl.
4. Add 1 1/2 C brown sugar and toss everything together to mix.
5. Melt 1 1/4 C butter and pour it into the bowl. Mix for one minute.
6. Add 2 eggs and 1 Tb vanilla.
7. Mix until the dough has combined. It will be crumbly.
8. Add 2 1/2 C chocolate chips. I used milk chocolate, but semi sweet, butterscotch or cinnamon chips would also be fabulous.
Mix the chips in.
9. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and press the dough into it.
10. Bake for 20 minutes. Stick a butter knife or toothpick into the center. When it comes out clean the bars are done. Don’t worry if they look a little bit underdone. They should. 🙂 This will help them stay nice and moist.
10. Allow them to cool completely and then cut into bars, or eat them warm from the pan. Whatever suits your fancy.
