6 TB Unsalted Butter
3/4 cup Light Brown Sugar

1 1/2 cups Regular Oats
1/2 tsp Salt
1 Egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

3 oz Bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and add brown sugar. Stir until smooth.
