Brown Sugar Oatmeal Bars

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Bars

1/2 cup AP flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tablespoons margarine or butter (room temp)
1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup brown sugar (I used 1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup stevia to lower the sugar content a tad)
1 egg
3 Tablespoons skim milk
1 tsp vanilla
 1 1/4 cup old fashion oats 
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1.) Place rack in center of oven.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.) In a medium bowl, whisk flours, baking powder and salt.  In another bowl, whisk margarine, applesauce, sugars, egg , milk and vanilla.
3.). Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredient bowl and stir until just incorporated.  Mix in oats  and chocolate chips.
4.). Pour batter into a lightly sprayed or foil lined 8x8.
5.)  Bake approximately 20-22 minutes or until just golden brown.
6.). Cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in an air-tight container to keep from drying out.
