Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Bars

These bars have a wonderful combination of spices. I reduced the sugar from 1/2 cup each to 1/3 cup each white and 1/3 cup brown sugar (2/3 cup total, instead of 1 cup). I used the cinnamon mini chips from Hershey’s instead of regular chocolate chips. These were easy to make in a stand mixer. Instructions have been revised to reflect the stand mixer.

Makes 16 bars

1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick or 4 oz.)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg, beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats (uncooked oatmeal)
3/4 cup mini cinnamon chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees with the rack in the middle position. Lightly coat an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

Melt the butter in a large, microwave safe bowl. Pour the butter into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the brown and white sugars and let cool a bit. Beat in the baking powder, baking soda, salt, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Beat in the egg.

Beat in the flour, oats, and chips. The dough will be stiff. Use a rubber spatula to spread dough evenly into the prepared pan.

Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. Cut into 16 bars when cool.
