Oatmeal Cookie (Crumbles)

Well I made some oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies.. they didn't hold together well. I think I will try this same recipe though.. because once I realized they were falling apart, they held together better if I squeezed them well. So I think this would make really good oatmeal bars.. in like an 8x8, they taste delicious!

Oatmeal Things

1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 flax egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Mix the red, then add the blue. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips. Either squeeze into cookie shapes (they don't flatten out so flatten them yourself) or try oatmeal bars! As cookies, I baked them for 11 minutes!

Or possibly add some flour to get them to stick together?

Additionally: I am using confectioner's sugar lately because I am out of granulated.. and hoping it works out.. so far so good!

Oh thanks, I added the baking time. 11 minutes for cookies, but if anybody tries bars it's sort of touch and go!

I bet a little flour would help, but they look delicious either way. oatmeal + chocolate chip = yum!
