Choc-Oat-Chip Cookie Bars

This is straight off the Quaker Oat's website and they tasted exactly they way I was hoping they would! I do love nuts in cookies, but I left them out of this recipe. We didn't even miss them.

Choc-Oat-Chip Cookie Bars

1 cup (2 sticks) margarine or butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
2-1/2 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
How to Make It:
1) Heat oven to 375°F. Beat margarine and sugars until creamy.
2) Add eggs, milk and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda and salt; mix well.
3) Stir in oats, chocolate chips and nuts; mix well.
4) Press dough into bottom of ungreased 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely; cut into bars. Store in tightly covered container.

Variations: Substitute 1 cup of any of the following for 1 cup chocolate chips: candy-coated chocolate pieces, candy-coated peanut butter pieces, white chocolate chips, peanut butter & milk chocolate chips or butterscotch chips. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 9 to 10 minutes for a chewy cookie or 12 to 13 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered. Makes about 5 dozen.

Made these tonight for my bible study dinner. Didn't use nuts, and added 1/2-3/4 cup of coconut. The girls LOVED them. Thanks for sharing!

AND they have Kelly's approval.;-)

I'll have to try that sometime, Kelly! My hubby doesn't like coconut, so I guess they would all be mine! :-)
