Semisweet chocolate chips
Butter or margarine
Quick cooking oats
Nonfat dry milk
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, wheat germ, dry milk, baking powder, salt, and nuts. Set the mixture aside.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, and mix in the brown and white sugars and the 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 the cake into 5 strips in each direction.
In the top of a double boiler or in a small heavy saucepan over very low heat, melt the chocolate chips and the butter or margarine. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir the mixture until it is smooth. Set it aside.
