Fudge blonde brownie bars

Yep I'm still on my diet! Yep I've lost nearly 4 lbs in a week (YIPPEE!) And I promise you it's not from eating this............... but I do have a free day (or at least a free meal.) So free day here I come!

This is an easy amazingly delicious bar recipe! I gets lots of complements and recipe requests when it is served!

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups quick cook oats

in a small microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk & vanilla, on 50% power for 90 seconds. stir & cook another 20 seconds in not completely melted. set aside.

in a large bowl, cream together margarine & sugar. add eggs & vanilla & beat well. sift in flour, salt & baking powder. mix until combined. stir in oatmeal.

press 1/2 of the oatmeal mixture into the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. spread chocolate mixture evenly over crust. spoon over remaining oatmeal mixture. bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until crust is golden. let cool several hours before cutting (if you can wait). Enjoy!

These look SOOO good!

Four pounds in a week!?!? How are you doing that? Seriously. I didn't know you had any to lose. I'm very impressed. You must have incredibly strong willpower.
We'd still love to get together.
