Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars

Awhile ago I was supposed to bring a dessert to a party. I was in a hurry so I made a store bought mix for oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, turned them into bars and brought them to the party. Everyone loved them (myself included). After the party I had a few people call and ask me for the recipe, so I had to spill the beans that it was nothing special, just a mix I had bought.
So when I saw the recipe for these oatmeal chocolate chip bars I knew I had to try them and see how they compared to the mix. The result: Better. Yep, that's right I think these are much better than the ones I mixed up for the party. And the best part is they are cheaper, homemade, delicious and every bit as easy to make as the mix was. I will definitely be making these again.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars:

3/4 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup quick oats

1 3/4 cup flour

1 cup chocolate chips

Beat the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla together until fluffy. Add the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips. Press into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes or until the top is a light golden brown. Do not over bake. Enjoy!
