This is one of our favorite quick desserts! My sister-in-law made them years ago at our house and I had to have the recipe. It's simple and delicious. I love the chewy Old Fashioned oats in it too, but I love oatmeal in sweets! Alexander (my 11yo) wanted brownies on Sunday. So, we made them together! I mixed the wet ingrediants and measured the dry, while he melted half of the chocolate chips. I love cooking with my kids! It's always messier, but they feel so proud of what they have "made" and the memories we make are more then worth that price. I hope you enjoy these brownies and maybe have some lovely memories with it in a few years too!
