I say that because yesterday afternoon, I popped on to the Cooking with Chef Bec Facebook page and asked for some help in naming this incredible bar cookie.  This sinfully delightful baked oatmeal cookie is loaded with so many great ingredients, I was hard pressed to find a name worthy (and short enough!) to use as the title of this post.

Inside of these yummi treats, you’ll find lots of oatmeal, browned butter (that nutty flavor…YUM), white chocolate chips, and dark chocolate covered pomegranate arils. In addition to “Double Chocolate Pomegranate Baked Oatmeal Bars”, here are some of the other great name suggestions that I received:

  • Pomegranate oatmeal crumble cookie
  • Pome-a-late bars
  • Yummi Bar
  • Chocoategranate Bars
  • Pom-Oat Browns

AND these last two suggestions came from my buddies, Jim and Cliff.

  • “I’d call them GONE.  I’ll be right over!”
  • OH my GOODNESS!

Nope. Those guys aren’t smart asses at ALL.

Truth be told, what I like most about these bars is how chewy and crumbly they are.  I normally go for soft and chewy where great cookies are concerned, but when it comes to oatmeal based cookies, I love that crumble!  IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you’re OCD about crumbs on your floor, you might want to stand over the kitchen sink when you eat these.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter browned
  • 1/2 cup granulated Stevia (or 3/4 cup sugar)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Watch carefully, swirling pan every few minutes. When brown specks gather in the bottom of the pan and it's smelling nutty, swirl briefly 2-3 times and remove from heat. Transfer butter to heatproof bowl and set aside to cool.
  • FOR THE BARS
  • In large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and sugars together. Add vanilla extract and slowly pour in browned butter. Whisk to combine.
  • Mix in flour, oats, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Use a wooden spoon to combine, assuring that all flour is incorporated.

  • Press dough into a greased 9x13" baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
  • Let the bars cool for 30 minutes before cutting.

  1. These look delicious! And; please, would, you mind sharing where we can get the darling red-rimmed-plates?

    1. Thank you, Jan!
      I bought those red-rimmed plates about 8 years ago, so I can’t be 100% certain, but I seem to remember finding them in the clearance section of World Market or perhaps Pier One Imports.

  2. You know that I love you, Becca. I really do. But, when you keep posting these wonderful sweets, I end up having to take my blood sugar levels more regularly. Needles hurt. I hope you feel at least slightly guilty. 😉

    1. I love you right back, Adam, which is why I’m going to suggest that you invest in one of those transdermal patches to help regulate your blood glucose. From one needle hater to another, belly up to the sugar bar, Sweetness! 😉

  3. I thought I was going to have a free afternoon, now I’m going to have to go out in search of chocolate covered pomegranate arils. Wish me luck!

    1. LMAO! Good luck, Karen! If you can’t find them, send me your address and I’ll mail you some. They’re SO flippin’ delicious. The company also makes chocolate covered blueberries. I haven’t tried them yet, though.
