oatmeal chocolate chip bars

From a post that K of Never Turn Down A Cupcake had on her blog, it lead me to Cookies and Cups.

Which lead me to her recipe for Salty Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars.

These were easy to put together.

Salty Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bars from "Cookies and Cups"
makes 24 bars

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp coarse sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 3/4 cups flour
2 3/4 cups of old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut

How to Make
Preheat oven to 350°.
Line 9x13 baking dish with foil and spray lightly, set aside.
In bowl of stand mixer combine oil, brown sugar, eggs, milk and vanilla. Mix until smooth.
Mix in salt, baking soda and flour. Add in oats and mix until evenly combined.
Stir in chocolate chips and coconut (if desired)
Bake for 20 minutes until just set.
Allow to cool before cutting into squares.

NOTES: I cut this recipe in half and left out the salt. Next time I'll add some nuts too. Chewy and soft, they are the perfect snack.

I bet sprinkling the salt on top of the bars might work too.
