Chocolate Chip Apricot Bars
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
Heat oven to 350F. Lightly coat a 9-inch square baking pan with
vegetable cooking spray. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and
light brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and
vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
and blend until smooth. With a spoon, stir in the oats, chocolate chips,
and apricots. Press the batter into the pan and bake 25 to 30 minutes or
until the top is golden and the pastry begins to pull away from the
sides of the pan. The center should be slightly soft. Cool on a wire
rack for 15 minutes. Cut into 18 bars when still warm, then let cool
completely before removing from the pan. Makes 18 bars.
