Am I the only person whose phone is constantly running out of space? I can’t be…
The other night the (almost daily, it seems) message popped up that I was running out of room to back up my phone *eye-roll* so I began looking through my photos to see what unnecessary ones I delete. I’m someone who keeps very little on my phone so it’s frustrating when this message pops up!
Anyways, while browsing through photos, I came across the photo of these oatmeal chocolate chip cookie bars from Tastes Better From Scratch. I made these delicious bars up back in the summer to celebrate national chocolate chip cookie day! They might not be round like a cookie but the explode with the chocolately goodness taste that a chocolate chip cookie has!
These bars are filled with chocolate chips! The recipe calls for pouring half the batter into your baking pan then sprinkling 1 cup of chocolate chips on top before pouring the remaining batter in. The first time I made them, I accidentally poured all the batter in at once then topped it off with the 1 cup of chocolate chips…and nobody knew it was an accident! So whatever way you decide, you’ll still get chocolate oozing out! Oh, and be sure to have a big glass of milk nearby, you’ll definitely be wanting one!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips, divided (I use semi-sweet)
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. and grease a 9×13 baking dish. Set aside.
- In an electric stand mixer bowl, cream together butter and both sugars. One at a time, add eggs and mix after each one. Add vanilla.
- Gently stir in salt, baking soda, baking powder, flour, oats, and 1 cup of chocolate chips. Stir until just combined!
- Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of chocolate chips on top. Carefully, add the remaining half of the batter into pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
