OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP BARS




These cookie bars are EXCELLENT! In a matter of minutes, you can bake up these gooey cookie bars that have a very moist texture and are filled with oats and gooey chocolate chips! They are marvelous to serve at a book club gathering, for a sweet treat after school or to enjoy with a cup of coffee. I would even recommend serving these as a tiny bite dessert for your dinner company! 



OATMEAL CHOCOLATE CHIP BARS
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 (3.5 ounce) vanilla pudding mix, instant
2 t. vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 cups of quick cooking oats
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 9" x 13" baking pan. 

Beat butter, and both sugars in a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Stir the pudding mix into the creamed mixture and blend well. Add vanilla.
Whisk the flour, soda and salt together in a separate bowl. Add these dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and combine well. Add the oats and chips and blend into the dough.
Press dough in your baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting into bars.
