How to Make Grandma McKinnon's Chocolate Chip Bars


  1. In a one cup measuring cup add the oil and eggs. Beat together. To this mixture, add enough water to make one cup of liquid mixture.
  2. Add to the dry ingredients and stir just enough to mix... it does not matter if there are dry spots. (Do not over mix... the finished texture will become more cake like and less like a bar....still good though)
  3. Spread into a greased 9x13 pan and bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Enjoy!
