Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars

 Print Friendly and PDF

When it comes to home baking, quality ingredients make all the difference. Take these Chocolate Studded Oatmeal Bars, for example. They’re made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Scharffen Berger Semisweet Chocolate Chunks. Sure they would be good with run-of-the-mill flour and chocolate chips, but my philosophy has always been that if you’re going to take the time to make something from scratch, you want it to turn out great. Therefore, start with great ingredients. Because these bars include Hodgson Mill whole wheat flour (the entire bran and germ are stone ground, preserving all of the grain’s natural nutrients and great taste) and 62% cacao chocolate chunks; they’re immediately transformed into something so much better than your average cookie.



In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy – about 3 minutes.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add the vanilla extract and beat until thoroughly combined.  Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and mix until just blended.  Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chunks.  Press the dough into an ungreased 13×9 inch baking pan.  Bake in a 350˚F oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool for 20 minutes and cut into bars. Store bars in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
