Chocolate Chip Bars

Chocolate chip cookies? That's been done far too many times to count. Chocolate chip bars? Now there's something new! What could be better than butter, oats, and chocolate? Well, some ice cream on top would help... But these are delicious all by themselves and won't put you in a sugar coma as fast as they would with added ice cream. :)

1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp corn syrup
4 cups rolled oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease an 8"x8" cake pan.

Place the butter, sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the butter and sugar melt and the mixture is well combined.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the rolled oats until they are well coated. Add the chocolate chips and mix well to combine everything.

Turn into the prepared pan and press down well.

Bake for 30 minutes.

When almost cooled, cut into bars or squares and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. I am seriously drooling over these! Yum! I can't wait to make them and eat the whole pan before anyone gets home! :)

  2. Do you think you could substitute the chocolate chips for some kind of fruit without them getting too bland?

  3. Oh, for sure. I think fruit would be a great substitute!
