Surprisingly Not Horribles

So way back in January, I made a resolution to pack my family full of fiber. I'd like to introduce you to some bars we invented. They're definitely fiber filled....but taste pretty good.
They're certainly not zero calorie, but somehow, all that fiberocity offers redemption...caloric redemption.

My kids eat them up...and I must say, they are pretty tasty with my afternoon cup of joe.

And they're in bar form, because they're less time consuming that way.

I give you:

Surprisingly Not Horrible Bars

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1/2 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
2 sticks of butter - melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup sugar
dash vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips
Whisk together first five ingredients, set aside. In a separate bowl, blend butter, sugars, egg and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients. Stir until combined, and add chocolate chips.
Press into a greased 9 x 13" pan and bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes.
