1 - 6 oz. package (1 cup) semisweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1 scant cup quick cooking rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt, if desired
1/2 cup chopped nuts
2 eggs
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips and butter or margarine. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine the oats, wheat germ, dry milk, baking powder, salt and nuts. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, mix in the brown and white sugars and vanilla until the mixture is thick. Stir in the melted chocolate mixture. Fold in the oats mixture until it is just blended. Pour the batter in a greased 8 inch square baking pan.

Bake the brownies in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the top is crisp but a toothpick inserted in the center of the pan comes out slightly moist. Set the pan on a rack to cool completely before cutting.
