Double Decadent Brownies (with oatmeal!) Recipe

This is one of our favorite quick desserts!  My sister-in-law made them years ago at our house and I had to have the recipe.  It's simple and delicious.  I love the chewy Old Fashioned oats in it too, but I love oatmeal in sweets!  Alexander (my 11yo) wanted brownies on Sunday.  So, we made them together!  I mixed the wet ingrediants and measured the dry, while he melted half of the chocolate chips.  I love cooking with my kids!  It's always messier, but they feel so proud of what they have "made" and the memories we make are more then worth that price.  I hope you enjoy these brownies and maybe have some lovely memories with it in a few years too!

1 c. sugar
2/3 c. (1 stick & 3 tbsp.) butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (12 oz.) pkg. (2 c.) semi-sweet chocolate morsels, divided (Sometimes I add a 1/2c of milk chocolate chips.)

1 tsp. baking powder
