Chocolate and Oatmeal Cookie Bars

I wanted something simple to fix for the 4th, and this easy cookie bar fit the bill. Just exactly what you would expect.

Fine as a snack and as you know of me, breakfast fare!


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2½ cups oats (not quick cooking)
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1½ cups pecans, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In an electric mixer cream butter and brown sugar together. Add eggs, and vanilla; mix well. Mix in flour, salt, and baking soda until well incorporated. Fold in oats, chocolate chips, and pecans.
  • Spread in to a 15×10 inch pan for thinner bars, or a 13×9 for thick bars.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes for thin, closer to 30-40 for thick.
  • Remove from the oven, and let cool before slicing.


NOTES: I would recommend the 15 x 10 size otherwise these get pretty tall.
