Baking Challenge #3: Chocolate 'N' Oat Bars

I am a little behind this week as I am posting last weeks baking challenge. I did actually bake it last week, however I left for a family camping trip and was unable to post it before I left. That being said, I needed something easy and quick to make that I could bring on the camping trip. This recipe comes from the book, "Favorite Brand Name Cookie Collection". It uses brand name goods from your local grocery store. Isn't that neat! Of course you can always substitute for the cheaper or generic brand.

Chocolate 'N' Oat Bars

1 cup unsifted flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE brand sweetened condensed milk
1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
1 (6-ounce) package of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Oven 350 degrees or 325 degrees for a glass dish

In large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar and butter; mix well. Reserving 1/2 cup oat mixture, press remainder on bottom of 13x9 inch baking pan. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crust. Sprinkle with nuts and chocolate chips. Top with remaining oat mixture; press down firmly. Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Cut into bars. Store covered at room temperature.

These bars are mighty yummy and incredibly easy for a quick sweet fix.
