These bars are great for a potluck. Using the Blood Orange fused olive oil and brown sugar makes them NOT too sweet. They can also be made with a creamy mild olive oil. Makes one (9-inch) pan
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the olive oil with a brown sugar and beat until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition and continuing to beat until the mixture is frothy and creamy,
Sift in the flour and baking soda. Mixing gently with a wooden spoon, stir in the oats, 3/4 cup of the chocolate chips, and the salt.
Turn the mixture into the prepared pan and use your hands to press the oat mixture down firmly.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the edges are crisp. Remove from the oven and use a spatula to spread the remaining 3/4 cup of chocolate chips evenly over the bars to create a chocolate glaze. Let cool completely in the pan and then cut into bars.
These will keep in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
