Davy Crockett Bars

I stumbled across this recipe, while I was searching for a cookie bar recipe. I made several changes to it and it turned out wonderful. So what is a Davy Crockett Bar?

It's very much like a blondie/brownie but with oats. So yummy! The changes I made were with the oil and the baking time. The original recipe called for a whole cup of oil. I could not get over that thought, so I cut it way down and added the applesauce. You could also remove the oil altogether and just use the applesauce. Much healthier! Another thing I had to do was watch the baking time.The original recipe called for 15 minutes. I used a 10X13 pan (I'm thinking they used a bigger pan.)  I started the timer for 15 minutes and added 5 minutes and then another 4 minutes for a total baking time of 24 minutes. A bigger pan might not be a bad idea.

Davy Crockett Bars

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup oil
UP TO 1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a jelly roll pan.

Mix together sugar and eggs, add flour, oats, chocolate chips combine until mixed well. Add oil and then applesauce. ** You may NOT need all the applesauce. You want your dough to be wet enough to spread easily without being too soggy. You want the dough to look like oatmeal. Add the vanilla.

Spread mixture into the prepared pan and bake. Depending on your oven and the pan size, start your timer off with 15 minutes and go from there. ** Write down the total amount of time it took, so you'll have it for future reference.

This is one of those recipes, that you can make all your own, by adding dried fruits and nuts.
