Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars

I found this recipe on the Scharffen Berger website and made a couple of adjustments. They were delicious and tasted better the next day. Do allow this chewy treat to cool completely before digging in.


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until light and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time. Beat well. Add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the butter and egg mixture. Mix until just blended. Add the oatmeal and the chocolate chips.
Press the dough into an ungreased 8x8 inch baking pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cool. Slice into bars.
Yields 16 servings.


  1. What kind of brown sugar? Light or dark?

    1. Hi Allie! I used light brown sugar, but these would be delicious dark, so use whatever you have in your pantry.
