I don’t think I baked during the entire block of microbiology & immunology (save for the banana bread I made during test week and ate continuously throughout it – no regrets).
Yesterday one of my med school friends came over, we made these loaded bars, and caught up on The Bachelor (which we have concluded has to be scripted… *rolls eyes*)
The recipe is super easy & quick:
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 18 Oreo Cookies, chopped in fourths
- 1/2 cup M&M’s
Melt the butter and mix with egg, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add in the flour until combined (don’t overmix). Stir in the Oreos. Pour the batter into a prepared 8 x 8 pan and sprinkle the M&Ms on top. Bake for around 20-25 minutes at 350*F.
Verdict: a good quick bake fix, but maybe a little too sweet for my needs… (is that possible?). I LOVE baking with Oreos though- never a dissapointment.
Testimonial from an MS2: “these are like an Oreo M&M catastrophe… … … in a good way.”
