Cookie Bars

These are super delicious..."a semi-healthy" cookie bar using whole wheat pastry flour (if desired) and oats.  These turn out very chocolaty with the perfect consistency of a thick cookie..make them for your health!  I got this recipe from tammysrecipes. com -Kristin

2 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry or white flour (or a mixture of both)
1 teaspoon baking soda
 1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oatmeal
12 ounces (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Cream butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla.
  • Beat in flour, salt, and baking soda.
  • Stir in oatmeal and chocolate chips. The dough is pretty thick you may need to use your hands to kind of knead it all together.
  • Press cookie dough evenly into a greased 9x13-inch baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly golden and cookies are set in the middle.
  • Cool for 20 minutes before cutting into.
