Choco-Chip Bars

I just wanted to try out some chocolate chip bars when I came across this recipe at It is really a very simple and tasty recipe. The chocolate chips add a great flavor to the bar for all the chocolate lovers!! I just made some substitutions and additions to the recipe...

1 large egg+ 1 large egg yolk
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2+1/8 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9X13-inch baking pan with foil, letting the excess hang over the edges of the pan to help you pull the bars from the pan after they have baked. Spray the foil-lined pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Mix the flour, baking powder, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside. Whisk the egg, egg yolk, and sugars in alarge bowl until combined. Add vanilla and mix well. Using a rubber spatula, fold the dry ingredients into the egg mixture until just combined; do not overmix. Then add the vegetable oil and mix well. Fold in the chocolate chips. The batter will be thick. Spread the batter into the prepared pan by patting it with hands.
3.Bake for about 25-28 mins until the top of the bars is light golden brown and edges start pulling away from sides of pan. Cool at room temperature. Remove the bars from the pan by lifting the foil overhang and transfer them to a cutting board. Cut into 2-inch squares and serve.
