I’ll be honest, I usually do my baking when Jenna is napping, but this time I let her “help”:) It is fun to watch her eagerness to turn the mixer off and on.may 2014 003_edited-1may 2014 002_edited-1may 2014 006_edited-1 may 2014 007_edited-1This is a quick, easy recipe we enjoy.

Chocolate Oat Bars

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 cup oatmeal ( I use baby oatmeal )

1 1/4 cup flour

1 tsp. baking soda

dash of salt

Directions :  Cream together butter & sugar. Stir in egg & vanilla. Add oatmeal, flour, soda, & salt. Press 2/3 of mixture into a greased 9×13″ pan.

6 oz. chocolate chips

1 14 oz. can sweetened, condensed milk

1 Tbsp. butter

Melt together chocolate chips, butter, and sweetened, condensed milk, stirring constantly over low heat. Pour over mixture in pan. Crumble remaining oat mixture over top. Bake @ 350 degrees for 18 – 20 min.

Tip – Be careful not to overbake 🙂may 2014 005_edited-1And then you may lick the spatula if you’d like 🙂
