This bar cookie is like eating apple crisp but with chocolate involved in every bite.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks)butter, 1 1/2 cups quick oats, uncooked, 2 cups (12-ounce package)chocolate chips, 3 apples (peeled or unpeeled), chopped, 1 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking soda and salt. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in oats and mix well.
Grease a 13x9" baking pan and press 1/2 of the mixture into bottom of pan. To remaining oat mixture, add chocolate chips, apples and nuts; stir to combine. Sprinkle over base evenly.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and apples are done. Cool slightly; cut into squares or bars.
