Oatmeal Fudge Bars

I can never eat just one!  Oh they are so good and simple to make!  I bet you have everything in your pantry to make these!

Recipe

1 cup butter, softened

2 cups packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or gluten free flour like the Namaste brand

3 cups rolled oats

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Set aside 2 tablespoons of the butter aside.  In a large electric bowl fitted with a paddle attachment cream together the remaining butter and sugar.  Add the soda, salt, eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla.  Add the flour and then the oats.  In a medium sauce pan melt together the 2 tablespoons butter, chocolate chips and condensed milk.  Remove from heat and add the remaining 2 teaspoons vanilla.  Press two-thirds of the oat mixture into the bottom of a greased 9×13 baking dish.  Spread the the chocolate mixture over the oat layer and dot the remaining oat mixture on top of that.  Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is light brown.  Cool and cut into bars.
