At any rate, I wrapped the squares in wax paper and have been sending them as an extra whole-grain treat in the kids' lunches. The recipe follows the picture:
Chocolate Chip "Cookie Bars"
1/2 cup canola oil
1cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips*
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut**
*After stating that I never alter a recipe the first time, I just remembered that I used a bit less chocolate chips and . . .
**I replaced the coconut with the health-foodie version of rice krispies because my daughter hates coconut :-p
It's getting cooler here in Okieville, perfect for baking, curling up in front of the wood stove (which will be installed Friday) & snuggling. Speaking of which, here is my new snuggle partner:
Not a bad little sweetie to spend a cozy evening with!
