Healthy Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Bars
Where healthy and great tasting come together - Dark chocolate and hearty rolled oats take the center stage in these easy to prepare bar cookies
2-1/2 cups Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Thick Cut Rolled Oats 1 cup Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour 1 cup Hodgson Mill All Purpose White Flour 1 cup brown sugar 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 cup coconut oil, melted ( may substitute canola oil) 8 oz dark chocolate, chopped into chunks ( about 1 1/2 cups)
1 Tbsp. vanilla 2 eggs
Preheat oven to 350Â°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish or line with foil or parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, add thick cut oats, flours, brown sugar, baking soda, melted coconut oil, eggs and vanilla and beat until combined and dough holds together (the dough will
seem oily, this is good). Mix about 1 cup of the dark chocolate chunks. Turn the batter out into a prepared pan, pushing the dough into the pan. Sprinkle on the remaining dark chocolate chunks. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, just do not over bake. Under done is always better in my opinion. Allow bars to cool in pan for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
