Chocolate Chip Oat Bars

20130728_131237

I have to confess. Calling these oat bars is a bit of a stretch. They are nothing like a chewy oat bar you would find in coffee shop – instead, they are deliciously nutty, hearty, granola-esque bars that beg to be topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Adapted from here.

  • 2 1/2 C Rolled oats
  • 1 C All-purpose flour
  • 1 C Whole-wheat flour
  • 3/4 C Brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 C Canola or cooking oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 C Dark chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients (excluding the chocolate chips), in a large bowl until evenly blended. Mix in chocolate chips. Press firmly into a greased 9x13inch baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool before slicing. Top with vanilla ice cream.
