These Chocolate Goodies are to-die-for! My wheat-free husband inhaled an entire pan of these things in two days (okay, I may have helped a little). Chewy on the bottom, crunchy on the top, and an incredibly rich layer of creamy chocolate in the middle, these quick-to-make squares are bound to be a staple in your home too.
Crust and topping:
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/4 cups freshly ground spelt flour
- 2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp salt
Cream first amount of butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in bowl.
Grind spelt kernels into flour.
Add flour, oats, baking soda, and salt to creamed mixture. Mix. Press 2/3 of oat mixture into a greased 9×9 inch pan.
Melt chocolate filling ingredients together in a saucepan over low heat. Spread over oat layer.
Drop remaining rolled oat mixture in little dabs over top. Spread as best you can. Don’t be concerned if a few spaces aren’t covered.
Bake at 350 F for 25-30 minutes. Cool. Cut into 36 squares and try not to eat them all in one sitting.
