Sometimes I just want a simple oatmeal cookie. This time, I wanted something more. So, I baked a batch of oatmeal blondies (or oat “slice”, for those of us in Australia). Of course, I couldn’t stop there. I had to add chocolate chips.
This is such a simple, delicious treat. Each slice is like a thick, soft, chewy oatmeal cookie. These blondies are so good and so easy to make. You may already have the ingredients in your kitchen. Made with little more than butter, brown sugar, and oats, these blondies can be whipped up in about an hour. I will definitely be making these many more times! My family loved them.
They would be really good with dried apple pieces, or any dried fruit you like. Nuts would be a welcome addition, too. Feel free to put whatever you like in these oatmeal blondies. I’m sure they would be equally good.
Enjoy the recipe…
Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Blondies
These easy blondies are like thick, soft, chewy oatmeal cookies, full of sweet chocolate chips. Feel free to swap some or all of the chocolate chips for dried fruit and/ or nuts, if you like. They're so good!
This recipe was adapted from My Lovely Little Lunch Box.
- 125 grams/ 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/3 cup plain flour
- 2/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips (or dried fruit, like apple, and/or nuts)
- Preheat oven to 180°C/ 350°F.
- Spray oil a square 8 x 8” or equivalent pan. Then line the pan with baking paper, allowing extra paper to overhang on two sides, for easy removal.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix melted butter with brown sugar by whisking until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla. Gently stir in flour until combined. Then fold in oats and chocolate chips.
- Pour oat mixture into prepared pan. Spread evenly and flatten the mixture with a spatula, pushing the batter into the corners.
- Bake blondies for 20-25 minutes or until golden around the edges and just set in the middle. Do not overbake, or the top will get too crunchy.
- Leave blondies in pan on wire rack for 5 minutes, then carefully lift them out in the baking paper. Cool blondies on wire rack before cutting into squares. Enjoy!
Store blondies in a tightly-lidded container. They should stay fresh for about 5 days.
