One of my favorite domestic things to do is bake goodies for us to nibble on over the course of the week. I love the flavors of Fall baking, apples, caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, spice, molasses, pumpkin. I tried these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip bars, and they turned out delicious!
Here is the recipe, from Betty Crocker’s Fall Baking issue:
1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 Tbsp molasses
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 cups chopped nuts (optional)
1 bag semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease jelly roll pan, 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1 inch. Beat brown sugar and butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses, vanilla and eggs. Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Spread in pan.
Baking 20 minutes or until golden brown and center is set. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
