Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

So today’s the day of the “BIG GAME”.

I’m referring, of course, to the Super Bowl. Honestly, I don’t care much about the actual game, I’m more concerned with the food, and the commercials.

Those are the important things.

So far, I have dessert covered:

Next on my list: make a big batch of chili, prepare my infamous not-fried hot wings, and to give Daisy a much-needed bath.

That last item has nothing to do with food, of course.

But I’m pretty sure you figured that out on your own……

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars – adapted from what megan’s making

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups quick-cooking or old fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and oats. Gradually add the flour mixture to the mixing bowl and beat just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Spread in a greased 9 x 13 baking pan, using a spatula or your hands to press into place. Bake for 20 -25 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool, but cut the bars while they are still somewhat warm, as a knife will go through them more easily.
