Shara’s Oatmeal Bars

What a day…an excellent day ūüėÄ

1.  I got to sleep in!!
2. ¬†I got to spend some time with my bestie…I really needed some girl time!
3.  I got to take a nap!
4.  The kiddos played really well together!
5.  We had homemade pizza!
6.  I got to make one of my favorite cookie bars for our Pizza with the Pastors Lunch tomorrow!

The only downer of the day was that Mike and I were supposed to go out on a date tonight. ¬†And technically, we still could have gone, but both agreed it was for the best. ¬†He’ll be preaching tomorrow because our Sr. Pastor is under the weather, and we felt the time would be better spent on him preparing. ¬†Oh well! ¬†Thank goodness we made plans in advance for an early Valentine’s date 2 weeks from now! ūüėÄ

Here’s those yummy bars:

Shara’s Oatmeal Bars
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1 c oil
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 c flour
3 c quick oats
1 c chocolate chips
1 c butterscotch or peanut butter chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. ¬†Grease a 10×15 or half-sheet baking pan (13×18). ¬†Combine sugar, brown sugar, and oil in mixer. ¬†Mix well. ¬†Add eggs and vanilla and make sure everything is combined well. ¬†Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour and oats. ¬†Combine again. ¬†Lastly, add in chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. ¬†Dough will be very sticky and thick. ¬†Spread dough out into pan. ¬†Dough will seem too stiff, but just keep working it out to the edges. ¬†It really puffs up during baking! ¬†Bake for 15 minutes or just until edges begin to brown. ¬†Cool completely before cutting.

And I’m just throwin’ this pic in because he’s just so darn cute…I mean, look at those lil’ freckles! ¬†After his shower tonight, he went and fixed his hair all by himself. ¬†He’s already turning into a metro like his daddy ūüėÄ ¬†I had to hurry & snap this pic before he put his ninja mask on to take on Cader & Daddy….LOL
