Today’s Cooking Thursday: Chocolate Chip Oat Squares

Chocolate Chip Oat Squares


Chocolate Chip Oat Squares(II)


Chocolate Chip Oat Squares

1/2 C. Rolled Oats
1/2 C. Flour
3/4 T. Baking Soda
5 1/2 T. Brown Sugar
1/2 T. Cinnamon
1/3 C. Water
1 1/2 Egg (for the 1/2 Egg, beat a whole egg and then use half)
1/3 C. Oil (or 3/4 Stick of Butter)
1/3 to 1/2 C. Chocolate Chips

1) Mix rolled oats, flour, baking soda, sugar/honey/agave, and cinnamon.
2) In separate bowl, mix water, egg, and oil.
3) Mix everything together. Then stir in chocolate chips.
4) Pour into a greased 7 x 7inch pan (a different dimensioned pan is fine…the squares will turnout slightly thinner or thicker…)
5) Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350degrees, using the toothpick test to test for doneness.

Et voila! Caramel-sweet, yet textured chocolate goodness…
