LAZY GIRL CHOCOLATE CHIP OATMEAL BARS

Normally I bake something on Sunday and then post it early in the week. This week, I made a funfetti cake. The box kind.

But you (really anyone who can read and stir oil into mix) already know how to make a birthday cake fit for an eight-year-old. So instead, here are some chocolate chip oatmeal bars I made a few weeks ago. "Lazy" because they require one bowl and no mixer.

Full disclosure: these aren't half as good as the funfetti cake.

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup canola oil

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup chocolate chips

HOW TO:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch square pan. Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips in a large bowl using a wooden spoon until dough holds together. Fold in chocolate chips.
  2. Pour dough into prepared pan, using the spoon to press down and into an even layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
