Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Our family loves cookies, but they require time.  I prefer throwing all of the dough in one pan and being done with it as you can see from all of the brownies, blondies and bar cookies on this blog.

I found this recipe when I was looking for a way to eat more oatmeal.  Sure, I could just eat a bowl of instant oatmeal, but these have chocolate. You can still eat these for breakfast since they have oatmeal in them, right?

Mix it up by using whatever kind of chips you have on hand to come up with variations like white chocolate macadamia nut, cinnamon raisin, chocolate and peanut butter or whatever sounds good to you.

I like to slightly under bake cookies and brownies so that they stay moist for several days.
