Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars

I have this thing for chocolate and oatmeal.  So when I purchased a new Amish cookbook I looked for their version.  They turned out really good.
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Beat together, then add:
1 egg
1 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 c. quick oatmeal
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. nuts chopped
Mix well.  Spread into a 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes just until the center is set.  Sprinkle on top:
1 c. chocolate chips
Leave in oven 5 min. until chips are shiny.  Take out and spread smoothly over the top.  Yield: 9x13 pan

Notes: I doubled this and used a jelly roll pan.   I used pecan meal for the nuts.  If you follow this recipe, the bottom picture is what you end up with....


  1. ok... I know I am dumb here...LOL But I see the term "jelly roll pan" in so many recipes... WTH is that???

  2. I would like to know that also...

  3. A jelly roll pan measures 11x15 inches and has a 1 inch side to girls probably have one but didn't know the term. I always call them cookie sheets...LOL

  4. Someone was enjoying it! He's such a cutie!!
