Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Snack Bars

Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

I found this recipe a while back over at Megan's Cookin. I love these bars because there is no white flour in them, but you can't tell when you eat them! They are pretty low in fat, so they're a lot healthier than a lot of cookies. They are nice and moist and chocolaty too!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Snack Bars

1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons skim milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups of old-fashioned oats, I used quick
1 3/4 cups whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the oil, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg whites, milk, vanilla and salt. Beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes or until the sugars have dissolved.

In a separate bowl, combine old-fashioned oats, flour, baking soda, coconut, and chocolate chips. Stir until just combined. Add to liquid mixture. Transfer to a lightly greased 13×9 inch baking pan.

Bake 15-20 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool until firm. Cut into squares and store tightly covered

These look delicious, and the recipe is very similar to a lot of my favorite cookies, so I'm sure I'll love it! I like getting oats in my cookies / cakes. Here am I, trying to kick sugar cold turkey for a month! I'll have to invite some people over so I'm "forced" to bake. Hee hee :)

These were really good and easy to make. I did only use 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 honey instead, since I added more liquid (honey) I added 4TB ground golden flaxseed. Thanks for the recipe!
