Ingredients

Crust
1 1/2 cup oats (quick cooking), not cooked
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 cup butter, melted

Filling
1 pkg cream cheese, 8 oz each, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Press crust into bottom and sides of ungreased 9" spring form pan, forming a 1 1/2 inch rim up the sides.


Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown. If shrinkage occurs during baking, press the crust back into place while still hot with a meta spatula.


Cool the crust for 10 minutes.


For filling, combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla, mixing at medium speed until well blended.


Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition.


Blend in the sour cream.


Gently fold in the chocolate chips.


Pour into the prepared crust. Bake for 1 hour.


Loosen cake from rim of pan; cool completely before removing rim.
