Recipe for the long lost Davey Crockett Bars

Davy Crockett Bars

Known as a school cafeteria favorite of days gone by. These bars are dense, use more eggs than most recipes, and have chocolate chips, and oatmeal.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
3 eggs
2 cup flour sifted with 1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cup oats
1 cup oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 cup nuts
Mix together ingredients, the dough will be very stiff. It has to be pushed or patted into an ungreased pan.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes in 350 a degree oven. Do not over bake or it will be hard and dry. TRemove from oven when it is still puffed in the middle. Cut into bars or squares while warm, and watch for the look of delight from your unsuspecting guest!
Anytime I have made these, everyone who has tried them has absolutely loved them. I don't remember this treat being made at any school I went to, so those children who did have them were a very lucky bunch.
