We can’t quite call this sinfully rich bars “health food” but with whole-wheat flour, wheat germ, and rolled oats mixed in, they’re much more respectable.

Ingredients

½ cup margarine, softened
1/3 cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup whole-wheat flour
¼ cup wheat germ
1 cup rolled oats
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 package(6 ounce) semi sweet chocolate chip

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350º . In a large bowl with an electric mixer mix on medium speed beat margarine with sugars until smooth. Beat in egg, peanut butter, and vanilla until well blended.
2. In another bowl, whisk together wheat germ, oats, baking soda and stir or beat into margarine mixture until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl if needed. Stir in chocolate chips.
3. Spread dough evenly in a buttered 8-inch square baking pan. Bake until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool on a rack about 10 minutes, then cut into 12 pieces. Let cool completely.

  1. In the directions it does not say where to put the all-purpose and whole-wheat flour. I baked it without it…havn’t eaten it yet so I dunno how it tastes.
